This is a very large memorial statue. It depicts the rugged men who worked and sometimes gave their lives in the iron mines in Northern Minnesota. He stands alone in the middle of a field.

This statue is one of the largest free-standing statues west of the eastern seaboard. It is free to see, located on the edge of a little commuter lot planted with flowers by volunteers along US 169, at the entrance to Minnesota Discovery Center adjacent to the town of Chisholm and a half-block from McDonalds. Nice place to stretch or walk... More

It is a must to stop and take a pic with Iron Man, and then scoot across the highway to Discovery World!

This monument to the miners of the entire iron range stands tall near the western edge of Chisholm, MN across from Iron World. It is huge and cannot be missed as you travel through this area.

Yes, it sure is huge. Enjoyed seeing this massive statue along our way through Chisholm. We would have liked to had time to see the MN Discovery Center too. The Iron Man was good itself, but would have liked to seen more information about him on site. I wonder what possessed them to move it in front of McDonald's. We... More

And then we took a drive through Chisholm ... a nice... More

It's worth a quick stop.Despite its size, the facial features are clear and evocative. There's a plaque describing miners' experiences.

The 3rd tallest free-standing statue in the US - and it's up in the Minnesota Iron Range. One of their best-kept secrets! A very nice tribute to the people that mine iron-ore to make steel for the rest of the world. The plaque could have given a bit more info - we found out additional history of the statue from... More
