Hull Rust and Hibbing Taconite
Mine View Overlook

in progress

a project by LUCITO 


The story of the Mesabi Iron Range dates back to prehistory in geological terms. The Hull Rust Mahoning Open Mine Pit, one of the largest open pit mines in the world, has never stopped its expansion since the discovery of iron ore 150 years ago.

The City of Hibbing, no stranger to the effects of an the expanding mine, was once hailed as “The Town that Moved” in honor of its early 20th century migration. Today, this journey continues coinciding with the relocation of the Hull Rust Mine View Overlook. The new park and visitor center is a recognition of the Mesabi Range’s legacy rooted in geologic and historical circumstances.
