Minnesota Reflections

About this collection

The Minnesota Museum of Mining in Chisholm, Minnesota was established in 1953 on 15 acres within a walled sports complex built as a 1930s WPA project. Located on the Mesabi Iron Range, the museum houses a steam locomotive and shovel, large pieces of mining equipment, haul trucks, fire trucks, a replica underground mine drift, a steam railroad diorama by artist F. Lee Jaques, and exhibits from early life in a mining town. The images contributed to Minnesota Reflections illustrate miners and their equipment, mine safety, lowering a mule into an underground mine, and construction of the WPA-era sports complex.
