LUNCH WITH THE HISTORY PEOPLE

 


When: Thursday, October 20, 2016, from noon – 1 PM

 

What: Author Nancy Lee will discuss The 1918 Fire that Destroyed the City of Cloquet.”  Nancy’s lecture is based on her book entitled The Island.  The impact of this fire spread all the way to Duluth and other surrounding cities.

 

Dunlap Island, located on the St. Louis River, surprisingly was spared by the flames.  At the time of the fire, the city of Cloquet banned all saloons.  Neighboring Dunlap Island had about 18-20 saloons, but none of them were burnt at all.  Nancy sums it up by stating, “Certainly, facts are often stranger than fiction!”

 

Where: The event will be held in the Ruth Maney Room on the first floor of the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot), at 506 West Michigan Street, Duluth, Minnesota. 

 

There will be limited theater-style seating (no tables), but feel free to bring your own bag lunch.  Seating is first-come, first-served (no reservations).  Admittance to this event is free to the public.  ARCO coffee is provided.

Antique Appraisal 


Bring your antique/collectible item to the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot) for a free appraisal on Wednesday, October 19, 2016!  The St. Louis County Historical Society has arranged for Dan Sershon of Northland Estate Services and Denny Mager of Northern Specialty, both experts in antique appraisal, to be at your service from noon until 3 PM in the Great HallPlease arrive no later than 2:30 PM to register in person.

You may bring up to two items per person for an informal oral identification and evaluation of each antique.  If the piece is too large or fragile to be hand-carried, clear photographs with a description of any marks and labels will be sufficient.  

Past participants have thoroughly enjoyed the appraiser’s comments on what is always an interesting assortment of antiques and collectibles.  ARCO coffee is available while you wait.                                                                  

This session is part of an on-going public education program offered by the St. Louis County Historical Society.  Sponsorship does not imply endorsement of this or any other estate/appraisal service, and museum staff is prohibited by professional ethics from making financial appraisals.
