Original Town, Hibbing, MN

Earlier this month I was lucky to guest lecture for Professor Margaret Holmes at Hibbing Community College. She was kind enough to take me up to the North part of Hibbing where at one point the mining company moved all of the homes and businesses because they found new deposits of iron ore. The original streets, street lamps and foundations for many homes are left as a weird empty park north of the new site of the town. The original cemetery and the Grey Hound Bus museum both report hauntings of figures moving down the street.
