Classic Protective Coatings recently completed renovation of the 2-million-gallon elevated water storage tank in the small town of Virginia MN. Although the population of Virginia Minnesota is only 8,712, this small town has a remarkable history.
Known as the Queen City, Virginia developed as an iron mining community built for entrepreneurs and financiers including Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller. Virginia also has a rich history for producing exceptional hockey players such as John “Bah” Harrington born and raised in Virginia MN. John was a stand-out hockey player at Virginia High School, who went on to be a member of the 1980 Miracle on Ice team that won the Olympic gold medal. When talking about Virginia’s history we also can’t forget to mention former hockey placer Jack Carlson who was born in Virginia. Jack Carlson played for Minnesota fighting saints, Edmonton Oilers, New England Whalers, and in the national hockey league for the MN North Stars and St. Louis Blues. Carlson’s brothers Steve and Jeff also born in Virginia are also former professional hockey players, and famous for their roles in the movie Slap Shot as the two Hanson Brothers.
Why does all this history and the people of Virginia Minnesota matter to Classic Protective Coatings?
