Saint Louis County Historical Society, much like the Minnesota Historical Society, is a full service history organization. In addition to its own exhibits on lumbering, mining, and many other locally significant stories, SLCHS operates Veteran’s Memorial Hall on behalf of the Saint Louis County Commissioners. Civil War veterans began Vets Hall, which like SLCHS also started in the Saint Louis County Courthouse. SLCHS has won national awards for a number of its exhibits. The expertise shown in the video is shared with affiliate history organizations throughout Saint Louis County. The reuse of the Duluth Union Depot, listed in the National Register of Historic Places, as a cultural center of many local organizations has preserved the historic use as a community gathering space.
