Local publisher and author, Tony Dierckins, wrote a piece in today's Duluth News Tribune that provides a nice historical background of Duluth's famed landmark, Enger Tower. Enger Tower sets prominently on the hilltop of Enger Park and often is compared to San Francisco's hilltop landmark. Enger Tower, as you may know, is set for some major repairs that will involve closing the tower during renovation. Te read Dierckin's piece, click HERE.
"While financial times are tough, it will be well worth a community investment to restore Enger Tower to its original glory. The tower will continue to stand as a reminder of our heritage, for Duluth is a city built on the sweat of its immigrant laborers, and our park system was developed for all of its citizens to enjoy."
