Project Overview
Partner Organizations: Northern Bedrock Historic Preservation Corps and Glensheen, the historic Congdon estate First, a memorandum of understanding between Glensheen and Northern Bedrock Historic Preservation Corps will establish the partnership. This partnership will allow Northern Bedrock to provide programming for participants and accomplish Glensheen's historic preservation needs. Northern Bedrock will use the partnership with Glensheen as a framework to partner with other preservation organizations to complete their historic preservation projects. Second, the partnership will write a strategic plan to rehabilitate a historic trail system constructed in 1908 at the Glensheen estate. The strategic plan will (1) assess the current trail conditions, (2) recommend how to rebuild the trail and outline costs, (3) prioritize segments of the trail and trail features to be rehabilitated and identify the technical expertise needed for the implementation and (4) formally define land ownership with the City of Duluth.
