Duluth celebrated its centennial in 1956—so how is it we are celebrating its sesquicentennial in 2020? Because of Duluth’s complex early history, that’s why. In fact, Duluth could arguably have six different birthdays.

How? Why? Well, you’ll just have to read about it in ZCP publisher Tony Dierckins’s second of eight installments on Duluth’s early history for the Duluth News Tribune. Read about “The Many Birthdays of the Zenith City” here.

And catch up on the series by reading the first installment about how Duluth came to be called “Duluth” here.

Happy 150th Birthday, City of Duluth!
