9780738518916: Duluth, Minnesota (Images of America)

Duluth, Minnesota, "The Zenith City of the Unsalted Seas," is located on the shores of Lake Superior. Once a center for shipping, lumber, mining, steel, railroads, grain, and one of the nation's largest ports, it housed some of the wealthiest people in the country. During the 1880s, the New York newspapers believed that within 20 years it would be larger than Chicago. Due to all of this wealth, the city grew at a remarkable rate, yet it also suffered through several recessions that almost destroyed it. With many handsome houses and remarkable buildings, Duluth's architectural heritage is among the strongest in North America. At the turn of the 20th century, it boasted more park land and green space, per capita, than any other American city, and offered residents a lifestyle that was incomparable.

From the Author:

This book is intended as a celebration of Duluth's past: its talented and industrious people, its beautiful natural environment and its architecturally significant structures. There are few cities in this country with a lake such as Superior at its doorstep and steep hills where rivers and creeks tumble through canyons and over rock formations to reach the lake. Those natural features convinced early surveyors and settlers that this city could be the next Chicago, or perhaps an even more important metropolis.

The ideal location for shipping timber, grain, iron ore from Minnesota's iron ranges, and other bulk products brought great wealth to Duluth. It was often said Duluth had more millionaires per capita than any other city in the United States. That wealth produced the mansions in the East End and the spectacular architecture which talented Duluth and nationally known architects designed from the 1880s until 1920.

We have attempted in this book to showcase those beautiful commercial buildings, homes, bridges and the people who created them. It is not possible to picture all the great architecture, past and present, in a volume this size, and it has been difficult to choose. We hope the reader will forgive us if favorite architectural gems are not included. Research on some early buildings has been difficult, and we have had to evaluate conflicting information and to choose what seemed the most reasonable and reliable.

It is our hope that this book rekindles memories and appreciation for the treasures of this wonderful city.
