Tower Soudan Historical Society

Tower and Soudan are next door small border  towns in Northern Minnesota bordering Lake Vermilion.  The old steam locomotive and other DM&IR train cars alongside the depot museum are remnants of earlier times when the community was bustling with activity due to the underground ore mine in Soudan.  The Museum and train cars and adjacent city park are open daily no charge to the public from Memorial Day until Labor Day.  The mine is open daily for tours.
