Subject

Heritage Network and Museum

Description

The Cuyuna Iron Range Heritage Network & Soo Line Depot Museum is now built within the old railroad depot from 1910 and holds a number of artifacts including past photos, maps, and relics, telling the history of the Cuyuna Iron Range. Exhibits include photos and short histories on the Milford Mine Disaster, 100 year old logging tools, and the ability to search through past high school yearbooks and directories from the Miners Hospital. One other exhibit of particular interest highlights the first man in space, Dr. David Simons, who went up in a hot air balloon-like capsule, from the Portsmith Mine. The Soo Line Depot Museum has an exact replica of the capsule on display. In collaboration with the Cuyuna Lakes Recreation Area, the Network has produced bike trails around the mine lakes for the public to use and access. The Network is also involved with the Crosby Heritage Days, which is on the third weekend in August
