This building is actually the second depot built on this site. The first was built in 1869 and was a small wooden building. That same year a large group of Swedish immigrants arrived in Duluth. They traveled here for a chance to work on the construction of the first railroad line in Duluth, the Lake Superior and Mississippi.

County Owned

The Duluth Depot is owned by St. Louis County, and appreciates the strong relationship we have built over the years in becoming known as the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center.
