Chisholm’s Iron Man Statue: A Tribute to the Miners of Yore

ironman-statueThe Iron Man Statue is a Chisholm MN landmark located across the street from the Minnesota Disccovery Center. The imposing structure is 85 feet tall and is said to be the third-largest free standing memorial in the United States, behind New York’s Statue of Liberty and the Arch of St. Louis, Missouri. The miner himself is 35 feet tall.

Designed by the artist Jack Anderson and dedicated in 1987, the statue is a tribute to the “mining men of yore,” who extracted the iron ore that made America the industrial giant of the world in the late 19th century.
