This week’s sneak peek at our newest bookDuluth’s Grand Old Architecture 1870–1940 by Tony Dierckins and Maryanne C. Norton—takes us back to the 1890s, when booming Duluth got its first federal building, which served as the city’s post office, federal courts, customs office, and even weather station. The building, which stood in the heart of today’s Civic Center, was so well built it took none months to demolish.
