An historic estate is about to get some much needed upkeep.

The city of Duluth is set to approve $100,000 worth of funds to make repairs at Glensheen.

Although the property is owned by University of Minnesota-Duluth, the city will be footing the bill for repairs.

City Councilor Zack Filipovich said the repairs have been needed since the Northland flash flood, of 2012.

“Glensheen is eligible for tourism tax dollars because 94–percent of their patrons are tourists, so it’s fantastic that we’re able to provide some support in this regard,” said Filipovich.

The repairs were approved last year and funds were set aside for the 2015 budget.

The city of Duluth is allocating another $50,000 to Glensheen to encourage promotion of the historic tourist attraction.
