History:

Embarrass Township (T. 60N, R. 15W) and its railway station received this name from the Embarrass River, referring to the driftwood formerly on some parts of this stream, which was a difficulty and hindrance to canoes. The community in section 24 has had a post office since 1896; the Duluth, Missabe and Iron Range Railroad had stations at the mine of this name in section 5 of White Township (T. 58N, R. 15W).

Recreation:
Mesabi Trail

The Taconite State Trail stretches 165 miles from Grand Rapids to Ely and intersects with the Arrowhead State Trail just west of Lake Vermillion. Portions are paved for biking and in-line skating. The remainder of the natural surface trail is used primarily for snowmobiling in the winter. The trail goes through a few areas that have standing water in the summer, however portions of the trail are suitable for horseback riding, hiking, and mountain biking.

The Taconite Trail winds through forests of birch and aspen intertwined with pine, leading the visitor by many isolated lakes and streams. From Grand Rapids heading north, you see the impact of the taconite and iron mining industry. The northern portion of the trail terrain is rolling and tree covered as it winds through state and national forest land.

Eight trail waysides and picnic facilities offer scenic vistas of the hills, lakes and rivers of this area. The trail also links three state parks: Bear Head Lake, Soudan Underground Mine, and McCarthy Beach. The landscape in and around Bear Head Lake State Park is very rolling and rocky.

PAC is a Minnesota corporation that powder coats metals for commercial and residential applications.  It can be used as a protective or a fine finish.  It is similar to a paint shop, but doesn't have the VOC's of a liquid paint.  It is applied in a dry form through an electrostatic gun, then baked in a curing oven to give it a very durable and finished look.
