Go 2,341 Feet Underground On This Minnesota Mine Tour

Given Minnesota’s mine history, it should come as no surprise that there are several mines that you can visit in the state. All of them are up north, on Minnesota’s Iron Range. The Hull-Rust-Mahoning Mine is an interesting place to visit. Its large, open pit makes it look like a huge canyon in the middle of the woods. The mine we’d like to introduce today is equally impressive, though in a different way. To see it, you have to venture more than 2,000 feet underground! It’s part of a Minnesota state park, and you can take a tour of it. Read on below to learn more about this interesting place.
