This small craft harbor is located adjacent to the former Cliff’s Erie Taconite loading facility just south of the small town of Schroeder. Taconite Harbor was developed in 2001 as another of the Lake Superior small craft harbor facilities. At one time, the Town of Taconite Harbor was located immediately southwest of the upper parking lot - all of the houses have been removed - there are still portions of paved streets, a basketball hoop and a few street lights remaining.
