The Gunflint Trail is a quiet and wild place. Best known for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness that surrounds it on both sides, the Trail is often characterized as pristine and untouched. But there was a time when things on the Gunflint Trail were very different. In fact, in the late 1800s an iron mine was established near the end of the trail. There was even a rail line that came down from Canada to the area. In this edition of Moments in Time, Barbara Jean Johnson of WTIP North Shore Community Radio explains how dangerous the construction of the rail line was and the life and death consequences that came with it.
