Facts About Duluth Minnesota

The Duluth harbors is 2,342 miles from the Atlantic.

Duluth was once home to more millionaires per capita than any other city in the world.

Duluth was once the busiest port in the U.S. & occasionally in the world in tonnage.  This tonnage came from huge volumes of iron ore from the Mesabi Range, and grain and coal arriving by rail from as far west as Montana & Wyoming.

On average, 40 million metric tons of cargo pass through the Twin Ports aboard 1,100 vessels each year.

Duluth is named after Sieur Du Luth (Daniel Greysolon) who made his first visit in 1679.  He tried to make peace between the Ojibway and Sioux so that the country around the head of Lake Superior might be safe for trapping and trading.

There was an Ojibway village at Fond du Lac in 1630.

Fur trading dominated the region from 17th century explorations until settlement (around 1852).

Minnesota Point is the longest fresh-water sandspit in the world.  This sliver of land curves out into the bay towards Wisconsin separating Lake Superior from the St. Louis River Bay.

Lake Superior is the largest freshwater lake in the world.  It is 383 miles long, 160 miles wide, and 1,290 feet deep.  It has a tide that doesn't exceed three inches.

Duluth extends 24 miles along Lake Superior shores.

Duluth rises 600 to 800 feet above lake level reveling in its picturesque rock bluffs.

Duluth is built on one of the oldest rock formations on the continent, an ancient lava flow called Duluth gabbro.  The entire lake shore is the edge of a geologic fault, whose steepness has been changed little by glacial activity.

Lake Superior is the remnant of glacial Lake Duluth, its basin the collapsed shell of a dead volcano.

  
God's Light

"Men are instruments in the hand of God, employed by Him to accomplish His purposes of grace and mercy.  Each has his part to act; to each is granted a measure of light, adapted to the necessities of his time, and sufficient to enable him to perform the work which God has given him to do."  Excerpt from "The Great Controversy Ended...A Glimpse into Eternity"
