Rocky Taconite, a spherical metalloid face with an equally spherical body is a pretty interesting structure and is made out of storage tanks of thick steel. It was erected there in the year 1964. On one of his gloved hand, he holds a pick and wears the hat of a miner. He stands tall on a taconite boulder which is the ore that helped in saving the steel industry of America. Also present there on a plaque is the name of the brains who figured out the way to change something absolutely useless to a valuable thing. The statue is very interesting and if you happen to be in the Silver Bay area, a visit to Rocky Taconite would be recommended.

Rocky Taconite Reviews & Ratings
Rocky does what he does best and stays put. He doesn't whine or complain amd stands there for all the tourists. :o)
Really fun thing to look at when sometimes driving by. Rocky Taconite is really cool, really representing how Minnesota is popular with it's iron mining. Great idea to add this to Silver Bay. Like the name too.
It's Rocky Taconite what's not to like!
Old guy but still looks as young as ever
Great stop to get a beautiful view of Lake Superior. It is a little incongruous to see a large taconite plant nestled in the middle of trees, hills, and a beautiful lake.
