Eveleth is the home of hockey, home to the country’s largest hockey stick right in the middle of downtown, and home to the US Hockey Hall of Fame Museum along Hwy 53. This mecca to the sport is a must-see for all visitors, hockey fans or not!
All about hockey, and then some!
Also not-to-be-missed is Eveleth’s legendary Fourth of July celebration, the tallest man made point in the area, Leonidas Overlook, and, for campers, Veteran’s Park Campground with swimming beach, fishing areas and wooded slots. The Mesabi Trail connects the city with the campground.
Check out the Thunder Over Eveleth Fourth of July celebration, long championed by local businesses. View the mural celebrating “A Proud Past, A Brighter Future,” The Eveleth Elks host an annual car show and corn feed that packs the town.
AT V trails and a little city history
Former Eveleth Police Chief Tim Koivunen helped lead an effort to make the town ATV-friendly, including a stellar sign project that shows ATVs how to navigate the city, and promotes businesses and points of interest at the same time. Make a plan to visit the restored Eveleth Auditorium. With full-on city support, the circa 1912 building underwent a transformation, starting in 2012, and is now a wonderful community gathering place. The Eveleth Heritage Society is a driving force in curating and celebrating Eveleth history.
