1. Oliver Club Marker
Inscription. With the mining activities expanding and the village of Hibbing's population growing, there was a lack of entertainment for the miners, so the Oliver Iron Mining Company constructed a building which was once known as the Oliver Club.

It had a two lane bowling alley, four pool tables, card room, a library, tennis court and an area where candy, ice cream and beverages were sold.

Many miners met at the Oliver Club as it was a place to meet and socialize with other friends.

The club was located three blocks north of this spot before being moved.
