OUR HISTORY – PRESERVING OUR PAST
“In order to know where you are going you need to know where you have been”
Iron ore and steel are still strong commodities in our nation and provide employment for many families and have once again become a part of Iron Knobs present economy with SIMEC re-opening the mines around Iron Knob.
The Iron Knob Progress Association Inc. is proud to share with you our piece of history and hope you enjoy the contributions, not only of the present members and associates, but also the hard work of past members who have helped compile the history for us to enjoy.
