"Nutbush City" Hibbing by Oatlad

A dying mining town

I grew up in Hibbing and still have several friends who live there, so I go back every once in a while. Hibbing used to be the center of a massive iron ore mining community called the "iron range". Right now Hibbing is in its declining years. It is not in as desirable a location as either Virginia to the east or Grand Rapids to the west, so tourism will not likely be HIbbing's saving grace.

Hibbing is the home town of Bob Dylan, Roger Maris, Kevin McHale, and Bus Andy. There isn't really much in town to see about any of these celebrities except there is a bus museum in honor of Bus Andy, and a bar called Zimmy's in "honor?" of Bob Dylan.

Pros and Cons
  • In a nutshell:Hibbing is a nice little town between Duluth, International Falls, and Bemidji.
