Friends of the Miner’s Memorial Heritage Park

775 East Ayer Street
Ironwood, MI 49938

The Miners Memorial Heritage Park (MMHP) encompasses the former iron ore mining locations within the City of Ironwood. The discovery of these mines resulted in the establishment of the City of Ironwood in the latter part of the 19th century. The last iron ore mine in the City of Ironwood closed in 1966.  The Friends of Miners Memorial Heritage Park was created to promote, maintain, and develop Miners Memorial Heritage Park within the mining areas of Ironwood.  Whether hiking, snowshoeing,  mountain biking, or enjoying the summer Emberlight Festival “Art In The Miners Park”, the Miners Memorial Heritage Park provides a beautiful natural setting to enjoy both the past history of Ironwood and its evolving stature as a recreation destination.

The Friends is a volunteer organization that carries out work on park development, fund-raising, and park maintenance.  You can follow the activities of the Friends on Facebook here:
