The Duluth Public Library recently participated in the Public Library Partnership Project that digitized local documents for inclusion in the Minnesota Reflections, Digital Public Library of America, Library of Congress and other databases.
Some of the most recent and interesting additions include:
– A promotional booklet about Duluth from 1916,
– The first City directory, published in 1882-1883:
– Five different maps of Duluth and St. Louis County, including this one which shows old portage routes and trails in Jay Cooke State Park.
The Duluth Public Library had participated in Minnesota Reflections prior to the PLPP grant so they do have many more items, so if you go here you’ll see all the items they have contributed to Reflections.
