City of Deerwood

The City of Deerwood Minnesota is situated among the lakes and hardwood forests of the Cuyuna Range.  It is noted for its heritage and rural charm. We invite you to see what Deerwood has to offer for your next vacation, business trip or new place to call home. There are also incentives to help with starting your business here. We look forward to seeing you.  Until then, we hope this site will answer your questions and give a snapshot of the City of Deerwood.

With a population of 526, the City of Deerwood is defined by a three square mile area with several lakes providing recreation and beauty. Deerwood’s city departments include the City Clerk/Administration, public works, police and fire. We have a playground, swimming beach, ball field, Depot picnic area and the Deerwood Auditorium. The historic auditorium’s exterior was recently renovated and the building is available to rent for your event. Call the clerk’s office to check on availability.

Formerly known as Withington (1871-1881), the area found it’s name being confused with Worthington in southern Minnesota. Since it was known for it’s whitetail deer population,  Deerwood was deemed an appropriate name for our community.  The post office was then established for the Village of Deerwood. With help from the Railroad Aid bill of 1857 and the Homestead Act of 1862, this area became enticing and accessible to those who wished to receive their 160 acres in return for living on and farming the land for five years. The closing cost of only $18 was an added incentive. The area boomed as the Northern Pacific Railroad forged through this area with an expansion from Carlton to Brainerd. The first depot was built in 1871. As more settlers arrived, the Village grew and gave birth to the Cuyuna Range. Cuyler Adams of Deerwood discovered the iron ore that started the mining boom. In 1909 the village petitioned to be recognized as an organized city.

On a record of business listings in 1913 there were over 100 businesses accommodating all the needs of the citizens. In early 1933, the local paper, the Deerwood Enterprise, began a public discussion on the need for a community building to exemplify the pride of the area citizens. In December 1934, Beriah MaGoffin Jr. donated all of the material from the old Meacham mine machine building to be used to construct the Deerwood Auditorium.  He also started a building fund with his $500 donation.  In 1935, construction began with the help of the WPA and local talent. The estimated amount of field stones needed was 800 tons which came from the grounds of what is now known as the Cuyuna Country Club. In 1936, work was completed offering a multi-purpose hall with balconies to seat 500.  It housed the village council chambers, kitchen, locker rooms,  library and the village fire apparatus. In 2010, the most recent renovations occurred. Those repairs allowed the building to retain its historic appearance.

City of ironton element view

City of Ironton

The City of Ironton, Minnesota is in the midst of the Cuyuna Iron Range and was established in 1911. The rich history of mining manganese-rich iron ore is what the town was built on when immigrants from northern and southern Europe settled in the area looking for jobs in the mines. With the closing of mining operations in the area around the 1980’s, the community has since enjoyed the beautiful scenery that now is part of the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area.

In a land full of lakes, the community has something extra special, being surrounded by mine lakes (former mine pits) that now make some of the most beautiful bodies of water around. They are a great attraction for swimmers and divers with crystal blue water and depths that are untouched since the old mining days. These lakes are also great for kayakers to paddle along the shores where you can catch glimpses of abandoned mining equipment, rail tracks, old buildings, and more. There are also some interesting finds that are visible in 10’-30’ of water while kayaking, canoeing, or boating so keep your eyes peeled! These mine lakes also are home to northerns, walleyes, bass, crappies, and sunfish, so be sure to grab your fishing pole. Many of the mines are stocked with trout each year, so don’t forget your trout stamp! The rugged country side also has created a perfect landscape for the Cuyuna Mountain Bike Trails which consists of more than 28 miles of single track red dirt trails with plans to expand over the next few years. These trails range from beginner to pro, so there is something for all stages of riders. If pavement is more your style, then the Cuyuna Lakes State Trail is wonderful for walking, running, or biking in one of the most peaceful settings around. Ironton is a great place to gain access to these attractions with the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area right on the back doorstep.
