The economic downturn was particularly hard on Duluth's West Side, where ethnic Eastern and Southern European workers had lived for decades.
Duluth, Minnesota - Wikipedia
Duluth and the surrounding area from the Enger Tower in Canal Park Lakewalk carriage ride in May With the decline of the city's industrial core, the local economic focus gradually shifted to tourism. The downtown area was renovated to emphasize its pedestrian character: These changes developed the new Canal Park as a trendy tourism-oriented district.
The city's population, which had been declining sincehas stabilized at around 85, At the beginning of the 21st century, Duluth has become a regional epicenter for banking, retail shopping, and medical care for northern Minnesota, northern Wisconsin, and northwestern Michigan.
It is estimated that more than 8, jobs in Duluth are directly related to its two hospitals. Arts and entertainment offerings, as well as year-round recreation and the natural environment, have contributed to expansion of the tourist industry.
Duluth has been called "the San Francisco of the Midwest," alluding to San Francisco 's similar water-to-hilltop topography. This similarity was most evident before World War II, when Duluth had a network of streetcars and an inclined railroadthe 7th Avenue West Incline Railwaythat, like San Francisco's cable cars, climbed a steep hill.

The change in elevation is illustrated by Duluth's two airports. The weather station at Sky Harbor Airport on Park Point has an elevation of feet mwhile Duluth International Airport, atop the hill, is feet higher at 1, feet m.
The considerable development on the hill has given Duluth many steep streets. Some neighborhoods, such as Piedmont Heights and Bayview Heightsare atop the hill with scenic views of the city.
Skyline Parkway is a scenic roadway that extends from Becks Road above the Gary — New Duluth neighborhood near the western end of the city to the Lester Park neighborhood on the east side. It crosses nearly Duluth's entire length and affords views of Lake Superior, the Aerial Lift Bridge, Canal Park, and the many industries that inhabit the largest inland port. A rapidly developing part of the city is Miller Hill Mall and the adjacent big-box retailer shopping strip "over the hill" along the Miller Trunk Highway corridor.
The —10 road reconstruction project in Duluth's Miller Hill area improved movement through the U. The highway project reconstructed connector roads, intersections, and adjacent roadways.
A new international airport terminal was completed in as part of the federal government's Stimulus Reconstruction Program. Geological history[ edit ] Lake Superior agate found on the shore of Lake Superior in Duluth The geology of Duluth demonstrates the Midcontinent Riftformed as the North American continent Laurentia began to split apart about 1. Continental rifting is a recurring process in the history of the earth that leads to break-up of continents and the formation of ocean basins.
In the Lake Superior region, the upwelling of molten rock may have been the result of a hot spot that produced a dome over the Lake Superior area. As the earth's crust thinned, magma rose toward the surface. When insulated by overlying roof rock, the upwelling magma cooled slowly, and is therefore coarse-grained.
- Welcome to IGM Gymnastics
In the areas where the rising magma erupted to the surface and cooled rapidly, basaltthe extrusive equivalent of gabbro, was formed. The lava flows that erupted forming basalt are exposed along the shore northeastward from downtown and at Leif Erickson Park. The deeply-formed igneous intrusions of the Duluth Complex can be seen at Enger Towerwhich is built on a knob of exposed gabbro.
As the lava solidified, gas trapped within the flows formed an amygdaloidal texture literally, rock filled with small vesicles. Later, groundwater transported dissolved minerals through the vesicles depositing concentric bands of fine-grained quartz called chalcedony. The color scheme is caused by the concentration of iron present in the groundwater at the time that each new layer was being deposited. The process went on until the cavity had been completely filled.MN State Gymnastics Meet JO Level 4 - Ariana State Champion
Over time erosion freed the agates from the solidified lava, which is not as hard as quartz. The creation of the Lake Superior basin reflects the erosive power of continental glaciers that advanced and retreated over Minnesota several times in the past 2 million years.
Lake Superior was shaped by the geology of the Midcontinent Rift. The mile-thick ice sheets easily eroded the loosely cemented sandstone that filled the axis of the rift valley, but encountered more resistance from the igneous rocks forming the flanks of the rift, now the margins of the lake basin. In the final retreat of the ice from the Lake Superior basin about 11, years ago, meltwaters filled the rift's scoured-out sandy core. As the last glacier retreated, meltwaters filled the lake to as high as feet above the current level; the Skyline Parkway roughly follows one of the highest levels of the ancient Lake Superior, Glacial Lake Duluth.
At one time a large number of quarries produced the stone, sold as Fond du Lac or Lake Superior brownstone. It was widely used in Duluth buildings and also shipped to Minneapolis, Chicago, and Milwaukee, where it was also used extensively. The weathered sandstone forms the sandy lake bottom and shores of Park Point. The average annual snowfall is The lake steams in the winter when moist, lake-warmed air at the surface rises and cools, losing some of its moisture-carrying capacity.
