Iron Range film to screen at MN Discovery Center Saturday

Those looking to bone up on Range history (I’m looking at you, most of the people running for Congress) can take in this excellent film next week at the Minnesota Discovery Center in Chisholm. I’ve seen it several times now and it will absolutely reshape your view of the region in the context of American history. Pam Brunfelt is my history mentor and a major influence on my book “Overburden: Modern Life on the Iron Range.”

Special screening of “Iron Range: Minnesota Building America” May 19

The public is invited to a special screening of the regional Emmy-award winning documentary, “Iron Range: Minnesota Building America” at 6 p.m. on May 19 at Minnesota Discovery Center. The film will be introduced by film contributor and historian Pam Brunfelt. “Iron Range: Minnesota Building America” was produced by tpt and Blackstone Productions. It is made available through the Minnesota Humanities Center, and tells the story of immigrants, conflict and assimilation, industrial America and people creating lives for themselves and their families. Refreshments will be served. There is no admission charge. Please call 800-372-6437 or visit for more information.
