This Wednesday, May 17, Zenith City on Tap at Glensheen features two heroes straight out of our newest book, Duluth’s Historic Parks: Their First 160 Years—landscape architects Anthony Morell and Arthur Nichols. The pair first came to Minnesota to execute the landscape plans for Glensheen; within three years they were the state’s premier landscape architects. In Duluth they designed parks, estates, bridges, and even entire neighborhoods. This talk, by Zenith City’s Tony Dierckins and Glensheen’s Dan Hartman, explains Morell & Nichols’s impact on Duluth and the entire state of Minnesota.

As always, this event is free and open to the public and beer and wine will be available. Glensheen, 3300 London Road, doors open 6:45, talk starts at 7:30. You can preview or purchase the book here.
