Town History

The Iron River area was first discovered by the Ojibwa Chippewa. During that time, the town became the “Blueberry Capital of the World.” The Blueberry Festival celebrating the delicious fruit is still held in the town annually. Iron River was a logging “Boom Town” at the turn of the century. Railroad trains used to provide transportation to workers in the city, along with hauling logs to markets. The railroad tracks have since been replaced with the Tri-County Corridor trail.
