Project Overview

A 38-minute documentary video was produced to capture and portray the diversity and vibrancy of the Lincoln Park/West End neighborhood and its history from the late 1880's to 1950's.

Research was conducted for the local churches, schools, businesses, events and the Park. Seven interviews provide insights into the life and times of area residents.

The video was made available to the public via the Duluth public television station, through community showings and at the Public Library.
