Something New to Dive About

  For the scuba diving enthusiasts there is something new to see under the water at  Lake Ore-Be-Gone.
  The Tall Pines Scuba Club of Virginia, lowered two old rail speeders cars into the depths of the lake. The 2 speeders cars were donated by Minntac Mining Company of Mt. Iron.
  The cars were thoroughly cleaned and lowered about 40 feet onto a platform. A great addition to the diving pleasures of Lake-Ore-Be-Gone.

Iron Range Historical Society
The Iron Range Historical society has opened a museum in the old Gilbert City Hall. Photographs, artifacts, and memorabilia reflect the area's heritage. There is also a research room filled with historical books for those interested in researching their family tree.
