Duluth history lesson

Ever wonder how Duluth’s waterfront industries came to be?

Consider attending a presentation on how industry developed along Duluth’s shoreline, presented by local historian and author Tony Dierckins on Tuesday at Clyde Iron Works, 2920 W. Michigan St. in Duluth.

Dierckins, who owns Zenith City Press, will cover the history along the city’s 28 miles of Lake Superior and St. Louis River shoreline.

The luncheon event, from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m., is presented by the Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by the LHB engineering and architectural firm in Duluth.

Cost is $18 for chamber members, $30 for nonmembers. Sign up at visit
