The Duluth Bethel Receives Grant to Preserve History
The non-profit is asking the public to donate items in remembrance of the Bethel.
DULUTH, Minn.- The Duluth Bethel has been serving the Twin Ports for 144 years, with the help of a state grant the non–profit is hoping to preserve its history.
The Bethel received $7,650 grant from the Minnesota Historical Society. Now the non–profit is asking Northlanders to share their memories of the Bethel. The donations could include photographs, books, and recordings.
“There’s a lot of people who have been touched by the organization,” executive director Dennis Cumming said. “To recognize the work that has been done, to recognize how those things have worked, also helps you to move forward.”
Currently the Bethel has more than 2,000 pieces of history. Officials say the history of the Bethel is an incredible story, that has yet to be told. As of right now they are unsure how the donations will be shared with the public.
