Documentary - Lost Duluth 5
This is the story of people and places lost to history; of mysterious ruins, forgotten markers and outdated industries; of what was back then. This is the story of "Lost Duluth."

The roots of Duluth began at an Ojibwe settlement along the St. Louis River and with the arrival of European settlers grew to eleven townships in all; they stretched from Fond du Lac to Lester Park. From Duluth's humble beginnings sprang industry after industry, including a harbor busier than any other in the United States, including the port of New York.

It's a bummer that they tore down all those awesome building from the earlier days that would have made Duluth "look like Prague." What a shame. I still love Duluth though, you can't beat having Lake Superior as your neighbor. This is an interesting and familiar documentary, thanks for sharing.

If you can get past the pixilation it is a very interesting documentary. Well done-many facets of that old gem Duluth are examined. I learned a lot.

I lived in Duluth in the early 70's when they filmed the movie "You'll Like My Mother" with Patty Duke and John Boy from the Waltons. It's filmed in one of the old mansions on Lake Superior. We were kids and thought it was funny that they had to use artificial snow because the natural snow wasn't snowy enough! Watch the movie, look at the snow and you'll know why we laughed!
