Wed, May 31, 6:45 pm to 8:30 pm

Duluth, MN 55804 United States

Minnesota Point was a popular spot for summertime fun long before there even was a Duluth and contains two of the city’s oldest parks — but they were mostly ignored for their first 50 years and it took until 1940 to create the Minnesota Point Recreation Area. Zenith City’s Nancy Nelson and Tony Dierckins discuss how people have used Minnesota Point as a playground from the 1850s until today.
