History:

Chippewa, or the Ojibwe were the first to inhabit the Ely area. They are believed to have sought refuge with the abundance of blueberries, which is why the townspeople hold the Blueberry Festival every year in late July. Trappers and voyagers made their way to the area in the 1700s in search of new land and abundant furs. Later, in the mid-1800s while explorers and prospectors were entering the area, the gold rush began. Although no gold was found in the Ely area, large deposits of iron ore was. Iron ore was first discovered in Ely in 1883, near the west end of what is now called, Miner's Lake. As the mining of the iron ore began, the population of Ely began to boom.

The town was first named Florence, but after discovering that another town in Minnesota was already named Florence, the name was changed to Ely. This name was in honor of Samuel B. Ely, a miner from Michigan who never saw the town.

After the addition of the railroad in 1888, the mines began shipping the iron ore to the docks of Lake Superior in Two Harbors, MN. Originally, the mining was an open pit operation since there was an abundance of iron ore on the surface. Later, deep shafts were made to start mining underground.

With the addition of underground mining, support beams made of logs were put in to prevent tunnel collapsing. This in turn started the logging and milling industry for Ely.

In 1967, the Pioneer mine closed. It was the last of 11 mines located in the Ely area. Logging still takes place today in Ely, but on a limited basis.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Ely, a city on the Vermilion Range, in sections 27, 28, 33, and 34 of Morse Township, platted as a village in 1887, incorporated as a city March 3, 1891, was named in honor of Arthur Ely of Cleveland, Ohio, one of the financial promoters of the construction of the Duluth and Iron Range Railroad, which was opened to traffic here in July 1888. He also was prominent in the development of the iron mines at Tower.

Another citizen distinguished in the history of the county, for whom this city has been thought to be named, was Rev. Edmund Franklin Ely, who was born in Wilbraham, Mass., August 3, 1809, and died in Santa Rosa, Calif., August 29, 1882. He came to Minnesota in 1832 as a missionary to the Ojibwe, under appointment by the American Board for Foreign Missions, and located at Sandy Lake. In 1834 his mission school was removed to Fond du Lac, where he labored until May 1839, then removing to Pokegama. In 1854 he came as a homesteader to the site of Superior, Wis., and in the next year he settled at Oneota, now a part of Duluth. He platted the Oneota town site, built a steam sawmill and docks, and was the postmaster six years but removed in 1862 to St. Paul.

Mesabi Trail

The Taconite State Trail stretches 165 miles from Grand Rapids to Ely and intersects with the Arrowhead State Trail just west of Lake Vermillion. Portions are paved for biking and in-line skating. The remainder of the natural surface trail is used primarily for snowmobiling in the winter. The trail goes through a few areas that have standing water in the summer, however portions of the trail are suitable for horseback riding, hiking, and mountain biking.

The Taconite Trail winds through forests of birch and aspen intertwined with pine, leading the visitor by many isolated lakes and streams. From Grand Rapids heading north, you see the impact of the taconite and iron mining industry. The northern portion of the trail terrain is rolling and tree covered as it winds through state and national forest land.

Eight trail waysides and picnic facilities offer scenic vistas of the hills, lakes and rivers of this area. The trail also links three state parks: Bear Head Lake, Soudan Underground Mine, and McCarthy Beach. The landscape in and around Bear Head Lake State Park is very rolling and rocky.
