The theme of this week was power and in this episode of LakeCast, we look into the power of the past. Duluth was built by wealthy tycoons that constructed monuments of stone and steel. Over a hundred years have gone by and their buildings remain. Some have fallen into disrepair but though conservation efforts, these historic commercial space are still being used. Carolyn Sundquist is a member of the Duluth Preservation Alliance and talked about how reusing these buildings is energy efficient and environmentally sustainably.
This interactive map contains historic buildings that are being used and reused due to efforts made to preserve Duluth's unique and beautiful architecture.
