New Depot exhibit portrays life of Erie Rail Company workers

DULUTH, MN -

The Depot is adding a new exhibit to their rail museum.

The Erie Rail Company is what used to inhabit the land that Polymet is now attempting to procure. 

This exhibit tells the tale of the lives of those who worked in the mines. 

A book is also in the works.

Those working on this project say it's important that history is not forgotten. 

"So many things in this country have been totally forgotten about because as important as they were, when the end came nobody took the time to ever document the fact that they ever existed," said Co-Project Manager Ron Hein.

Those behind the project say the Erie Mining Company history book should be published by October of this year.
