Video Archive: Wabasha Books moves to First Street in 1998

It was July 1998 when Wabasha Books, longtime purveyor of adult paperbacks and other products, made plans to move from 13 E. Superior St. to 114 E. First St.

The former Wabasha location met a wrecking ball a few months later, along with other buildings on the block. The Duluth Technology Village was built in their place.

As noted in the video, the modern day Wabasha location was home to a nightclub called Heaven in 1998. Before that it was a Moose Lodge.
