Feeling personally responsible as Hibbing's creator, he took the 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. Hibbing made his home in Duluth where many of his business interests were centered.

After deciding he was not familiar enough with the English language to make a legal career possible, he turned to timber cruising. 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.

The address side usually carried the words "The address only to be written only on this side" or similar. Initially the publisher information had to be on the picture side.

This is one of the early cards published by Valentine & Sons, and is an attractive multi-view card of a smaller size than the standard sized postcard introduced in 1899.

Only a few uninhabited remnants of the original townsite are left near an observational lookout at the edge of the mine.
