Anticipating the demolition of the Duluth Motel and Star Enterprises in West Duluth, I took a few photos two weeks ago. Both buildings are rubble now.
Does anyone have any interesting Duluth Motel stories? I think the only time I ever went in was to deliver a stack of phone books in 1992.
I have better memories of Denfeld’s smokestack, which is in the background of this picture and is in the process of being torn down as well. It used to be the place where human smokestacks — the various students who smoked cigarettes — would hang out when I was a kid. (Smokers have had to go across the street since the mid 1980s, when Denfeld became a tobacco-free campus.)
I vaguely remember using the fax machine at Star Enterprises in the late 1990s and thinking the fee seemed outrageous. That’s about it.
