Duluth Art Institute Lincoln Branch Library

The Lincoln Branch Library, a Carnegie library now owned by the Duluth Art Institute, was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2013 as a result of a nomination I prepared. Thank you to Erik Sommer for helping with the research in the Andrew Carnegie Collection at Columbia University.

Duluth Bethel Society

I’m working on an evaluation of the Duluth Bethel Society building for National Register of Historic Places purposes. On December 31, 2015, the green light located on top of the building, signifying it is a place of safety, will be lit again for the first time in many years.
