This month Jim Davis takes us to 5410 Otsego Street and all the way back to 1892, when the first Lester Park Elementary school was built on the southeast corner of 54th and Otsego. A year after it was built, Lester Park and Lakeside joined the city of Duluth, and the school became part of the Duluth school district.

  1. It’s possible my grandmother Katie Griffith McDermid is in this picture. Any names for it anywhere?
