Hiawatha Park

Hiawatha Statue

Hiawatha Statue was built in 1964 and is made mainly of fiberglass.  Hiawatha is 52 feet tall and looks north to Lake Superior. Hiawatha was the leader and founder of the Iroquois Confederacy and the statue was designed to symbolize unity and peace within each nation that had joined the confederacy.

Fully Refurbished

After decades of watching over the Gogebic Range, Hiawatha weathered and deteriorated significantly since first construction.  In an effort to preserve the historic landmark, the Ironwood Chamber of Commerce took action and fund raised approximately $14,000 to fully restore the statue for years decades to come.
