History:

Hibbing was founded in 1893 by the town's namesake, Frank Hibbing. Hibbing was born in Hanover, Germany on December 1, 1856 and was christened Frans Dietrich Von Ahlen. His mother, who died when he was still in infancy, was of English birth, and it was her name, Hibbing, which he assumed when he set out to seek his fortune in the New World. He first settled in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin where he worked on a farm and in a shingle mill. After deciding he was not familiar enough with the English language to make a legal career possible, he turned to timber cruising. In 1887, Mr. Hibbing settled in Duluth where he established a real estate business and began explorations on the Vermilion Range. In 1892, he headed a party of thirty men at Mountain Iron and cut a road through the wilderness to Section 22, 58-20. An expert iron ore prospector, he soon discovered the surface indication which led him to believe in the existence of extensive ore deposits.

In July 1893, the townsite of Hibbing was laid out and named in honor of him. Feeling personally responsible as Hibbing's creator, he took deepest pride in its development and by his generous aid made its progress possible. He used his personal means to provide a water plant, electric light plant, the first roads, hotel, sawmill and bank building. For the last ten years of his life, Mr. Hibbing made his home in Duluth where many of his business interests were centered. He retained close contact with the community which bore his name, until he died of appendicitis on July 30, 1897 at age forty.

In 1914 two men, Carl Wickman and Andrew "Bus Andy" Anderson, started a bus line between Hibbing and Alice, Minnesota which would eventually become Greyhound Lines, the world's largest bus company.

The town is the home to the world's largest iron ore mine. Hibbing grew rapidly in its early years as the huge iron ore mines such as the Mahoning, Hull Rust, Sellers and Burt provided the raw material for America's industrial revolution. In fact, the mines encroached on the village from the east, north and south and it was determined that some of the ore body actually went under the town whose population had hit 20,000 by 1915.

Negotiations between the Oliver Mining Company and the village finally brought about a plan whereby the entire city would relocate to a site two miles south near the small hamlet of Alice. The company, for its part, agreed to develop the downtown buildings with low interest loans that could be paid off over the years by the retailers. New civic structures such as Hibbing High School, the Androy Hotel, the Village Hall and the Rood Hospital were also constructed with mining company money. In all, about 200 structures were moved down the First Avenue Highway, as it was called, to the new city. These included a store and even a couple of large hotels. Only one structure didn't make it. A hotel tumbled off the rollers and crashed to the ground leaving, as one witness said, "an enormous pile of kindling". The move started in 1919, and the first phase was completed in 1921. North Hibbing remained as a business and residential center through the 1930s when the mining companies bought the remaining structures. The last house was moved in 1968.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

HIBBING, a large mining city of the Mesabi Range in Stuntz Township, was named in honor of Frank Hibbing, its founder. He was born in Germany in 1857; came to the United States with his parents when a boy; engaged in lumbering in Duluth and also acquired large interests in the Mesabi iron mines; discovered the Hibbing ore beds in the autumn of 1892; died in Duluth, July 30, 1897. The post office began in 1893; the city had stations of the Duluth, Missabe and Iron Range Railroad and Great Northern Railway.

Hull Rust Mahoning Mine

The world’s largest open pit mine, the Hull-Rust-Mahoning Mine witnessed the development of strip mining technology. In its peak production years during World Wars I and II, the mine supplied as much as one-fourth of all the iron ore mined in the United States. This area of the Mesabi Iron Range was explored in 1893-94, shortly after the first Mesabi ore was shipped from the nearby Mountain Iron Mine in 1892. Early underground mining at Hull-Rust-Mahoning soon gave way to strip mining, a process better suited to the soft, shallow ore deposits of the Mesabi. As the mines grew, the many open pits gradually merged into one and the area came to be known as the “Man-made Grand Canyon of the North.” Mine consolidation led in 1901 to the formation of U.S. Steel, then the world’s largest corporation. The vast size of Hull-Rust-Mahoning also spurred development of the technologies used for open pit mining. It is here that the steam shovel was introduced.

Hibbing Community College was established on July 1, 1996, through the consolidation of Hibbing Community College and Range Technical College-Hibbing. Governed by the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities System, HCC is a public two-year, comprehensive community and technical college. Hibbing was one of the first cities in the nation to expand educational opportunities by opening a two-year college in 1916. Thus, Hibbing Community College is one of the country's oldest two-year colleges.

Hibbing High School, Hibbing Minnesota
Construction of Hibbing High School was started in 1920. The cost of the building was roughly $3,900,000. Today it would cost over $50 million to replace. The ceiling on the main floor and in the auditorium is all hand molded, an art now obsolete. The majority of it was done by Irish craftsmen. The auditorium, with its cut glass chandeliers ($15,000 each in 1920) from Czechoslovakia and Barton vaudeville organ (installed in 1923 and one of two left in the country), was designed after the old Capitol Theater of New York, now out of existence. The unique library contains statuary and the historical oil painting by Howard Lake, Minnesota, native David Workman depicting the journey iron ore makes to become steel. A $5 million physical education and band complex addition was dedicated in 1991.

Greenhaven Elementary School, Hibbing Minnesota

Greenhaven Elementary School is located 323 East 37th Street. It is a one story, handicap accessible school that serves students in grades Early-Fives through Grade Three. The setting of the school is quite picturesque with large hardwood and evergreen trees. The large playground and ice skating rink are maintained through a partnership with the Hibbing Recreation Department. Greenhaven Elementary School construction started in 1954 and was finished in 1955. Our building was designed to house three sections of each grade from Kindergarten through sixth grade. We have had some changes in our building since then. We have gone to an E5-5 building a few years ago and this year the Greenhaven will house grades E5-3 with grades 4-6 being held at the Lincoln Elementary school. The library is now the computer lab. In the spring of 2001, we also changed our mascot from the gopher to the greyhound, in part to reflect the heritage of the famous bus line that started in our town.
