City of Ladysmith

Old Smokey, a retired Soo Line 2-8-2 Midado steam locomotive, serves as a reminder that Ladysmith was once a booming rail center. A 500-A, the first passenger diesel of the Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste. Marie Railroad, and five other cars are also on display.

Cultural arts, music, and dance concerts are offered year-around. Nearly every week-end features a local fair or celebration. Ladysmith’s Northland Mardi Gras is a popular feature in July with the unique and spectacular Venetian night parade on the Flambeau River.

A dedicated skilled labor force is strongly evidenced in all categories of office, manufacturing, and professional services available in Ladysmith and the surrounding areas. Industry can be found in one of two modern and well developed parks on the South side of Ladysmith. Over $150 million in new industrial investment has occurred since 1995.

The quality of education in the Ladysmith-Hawkins School District is extremely high. Total enrollment is just over 1,000 students, spread between a modern modular high school campus, renovated middle school, and newer elementary school.

Whatever the season: the fresh green of Spring, the full bloom of Summer, the gorgeous colors of Fall, or the tranquility of Winter, you will enjoy your Ladysmith visit.
