Inscription
Frank Hibbing was a German immigrant who came to Minnesota from Wisconsin, arriving on the Mesaba Range in 1892. He had heard that iron ore was discovered in Mt. Iron in 1890.

He recognized the possibilities of iron ore further to the west.

"I believe there's iron ore under me, my bones feel rusty and chilly," said Mr. Hibbing and he proceeded to purchase land leases.

One of the first things he did was to plot out a townsite. The townsite was incorporated on August 15, 1893 and named Hibbing.
