The Iron Range Research Center holds a collection of over 100,000 maps. The bulk of the maps document the Iron Mining Industry in northeastern Minnesota, but also includes maps documenting the Superior and Chippewa National Forests and Range towns.
In order to encourage the study of Iron Range history, the Iron Range Research Center identifies, collects, processes, catalogs, preserves, displays, and makes easily accessible the historically significant written, oral, and visual records of Minnesota’s Iron Range.
The Iron Range Research Center has digitized items from a number of its collections and provides finding aids and abstracts for many others. Use the links to the left to explore our digital resources. Working to make more of our collection accessible online is a top priority.
