This mural brings back the glory days of iron mining in the UP and norther Wisconsin. Those were some tough guys that entered the mines up to 4,300 feet deep in the Monteral Mine.

A very large mural on the side of a building downtown. Very intricate and detailed. It shows a large group of iron miners in their work clothes. Very detailed.

Large mural depicting our mining heritage. Individuals seen on the mural are actual residents of the area. More significant to local residents than tourists but still worth seeing.
