History of Fayal Township

Pictures of Fayal Township's early history hang on the walls of the Fayal Town Hall. Mining was the driving force in the organization of the township when in November 1893, David T. Adams of Duluth, discovered merchantable ore in Fayal. This discovery was in the vicinity of the northwest quarter of the northwest quarter of section 5, and the north half of the northwest quarter of section 6, township 57-17. The Fayal No. 1 was explored by the McInnis Mining Company and organized on the 31st day of January 1894. The area was divided into five mines by different mining interests and was classed among the greatest mines of the Mesabi Range. Eventually the Fayal mines passed to the Oliver Iron Mining Company, which has since controlled them. By the end of 1919 they had yielded an aggregate of 29,908,246 tons, more than a million tons a year since the beginning. At first, the mining was by shaft, but later three different systems were being operated concurrently. There were two large open pits, milling being carried on in one and loading direct into cars with steam shovels in the other, while underground mining was continued.



Boys At Scout Camp 
Boy Scout Camp

Even though there was much work to do in those days, there were places to go and have fun. The Scout Camp, now called Camp Chicagami, was host to many good times for area youth.



Oliver Retreat Half Moon Lake

For the women, the Oliver Mining Company constructed the Olcott Lodge on the shore of Half Moon Lake. It was here that women could come to rest and relax for a few days. In 1927, seventy women registered to spend time at the Lodge, and in 1928 there were seventy-two. A matron was employed at the Lodge to operate the enterprise and keep harmony amongst the guests. Women would register to spend time at the Lodge and a selection committee would try to process the grouping of women by nationalities, due to limited knowledge of the English language.
