Dickinson County was named for Donald M Dickinson who was Postmaster General
under President Grover Cleveland. Iron was first found in the late 1840's.
The Chapman Mine became one of the largest iron ore producers during the
period from 1880 until it closed in 1934. Today Dickinson still has some iron
ore mining and lumbering. Pine Mountain Ski Slide is here.
