Lincoln Park Neighborhood Being Evaluated for Historic Designation

The cities' Heritage Preservation Committee has been working with consultants to evaluate buildings along Superior Street

DULUTH, Minn. – The Lincoln Park neighborhood on Duluth’s west side may receive some historic designation later this year.

The cities’ Heritage Preservation Committee has been working with consultants to evaluate buildings along Superior Street in that area.

Today, an architectural historian presented some initial recommendations to the committee.

Some of the locations being considered for historical designation include the former Duluth Press Building, the Duluth National Bank and the Minnesota Power and Light Substation.

“Duluth, I think, in recent years has to be given a lot of credit for recognizing its historic heritage and working to try and preserve and promote that,” said Marjorie Pearson, a senior architectural historian working on the project.

Residential homes will also be considered during this historical evaluation period. The consultants will present a recommendation In June. The city will then determine which sites should become landmarks for the National Register Listing or a local historical designation.
