We are very excited today to have launch our new website.  With the help of John from Make It Loud, we now have a website that not only functions, but is something we can make changes to.  We are looking forward to being in better touch with the people of our fair city, to keeping you posted on the work of the Duluth Historical Society, and to continuing to resarch the history of our city.  

Please take the time to come and visit the Duluth Historical Society at old train depot at the Southeastern Railway Museum.  There are fantastic exhibits anyone can come and peruse and we guarantee you will learn more about our city!

We have exciting news ! We are proud to announce
that we are in the process of publishing a booklet  that is a collection
of re-told stories by  Duluth families, legends , lies, and family history,
and the South. They have been handed down by word of mouth
thru generations of Southerners ancestors.  

This collection of stories are humorous, fact finding
and shows the diversity within the Southern culture. 
We are hoping to get it completed and to make it available
at the 2019 Duluth Fall Festival. It is the last weekend
in September. We can be located at the old
jail (Calaboose) at the south end of Main St. 
It is not to late to submit your stories that maybe
you talked about with the family elders. Please send
by email to=
Please DO NOT send a .PDF file. Submit in a word document
or you can put the story in a regular e-mail and send it.
That way there is  no need for an attachment.


Starting the first week in Sept. we will install our
Fall Festival Displays in the Historic Duluth Train Depot and 
some storytelling. We are located on the grounds of the
Southeastern Railway Museum sitting next to the train track
just south of downtown.
