2023’s Historical Properties Tour brings the public into historic Duluth locations

Sunday, the Duluth Preservation brought back its annual Historic Properties Tour, where you could go inside some of Duluth’s most historic buildings.

The Alliance hand picked all the locations. The goal of the tour is not only to look at all the different architecture, but to show the importance of preserving it.

On the tour people could visit six historic properties built between 1889 to 1939. This year’s buildings included:

  • Mallman House, 19 N 43rd Ave E., Built 1889
  • First Presbyterian Church, 300 E. 2nd St., Built 1891
  • Morgan Park Company House, 1051 84th Ave. W., Built 1913
  • Weiss House, 201 Ridgewood Rd., Built 1927
  • Garfield News Building, 1604 W. Superior St., Built 1938
  • Park Point Street Car House, 1229 Minnesota Ave., Converted about 1939

This year the Duluth Preservation says around 250 people attended and all of the money goes toward other local historical restoration projects like the Armory.
