Inscription.  The Park was built on the location once occupied by the first two permanent buildings in Two Harbors. The Lakeview Hotel and the D&IR Office. Both buildings were moved inland and are still in use today.

Once called Voyagers Park and later Ore Dock Park this old industrial area was reclaimed in 1949 to create the new DM&IR Dock Park. This effort was a collaboration between the railroad and the Lake County Civic Association

In 1950 the park was rededicated as Paul H. Van Hoven Park . . . DM&IR president.
 
Erected by Lake County Historical Society with the assistance of Boy Scouts Troop #160.
