Archive Dive: Kitchi Gammi Park

OK, here’s the deal: Duluth has no “Brighton Beach” park. Brighton Beach is within Kitchi Gammi Park. It was originally created as a tourist camp and it development is linked to Congdon Boulevard, which runs along the path of Scenic Highway 61 to Stoney Point. Learn much more abut the park and boulevard in this excerpt from our book Duluth’s Duluth’s Historic Parks, here.

When F. Rodney Paine became Duluth’s Parks Superintendent in 1926, he had cabins built at the Brighton Beach tourist camp within Kitchi Gammi Park. (Image: Tom Kasper)
