The story of the Duluth-Superior Harbor is long and colorful. It begins with the geologic forces that formed the natural harbor, and continues today with the engineering marvels that persist in reshaping the face of our working waterfront. “Harbor History” is a big story- in turns dramatic, tragic, funny, and fascinating. It is a tale of Native Americans, explorers, traders, and immigrants - political maneuvering, economic ups and downs, huge opportunities, maritime industry, and gargantuan building projects. Our story is illustrated with rare old drawings, maps, photographs, and archival film. “Harbor History” is a delightful documentary about challenge, inspiration, and triumph. It is a worthy addition to the videotape library of any history buff.

  • Harbor History - Overview
  • Harbor History I - A Grand Idea
  • Harbor History II - The War Years
  • Harbor History III: Modern Harbor- World Port (1954-1980)

An Illustrated History of the Port of Duluth-Superior

French-Canadian voyageurs began striking inland from the Head of the Lakes in the 17th century, searching for pelts to transport back down the Lakes to Montreal. Today, more than 300 years later, Duluth-Superior remains one of North America’s most important ports, handling millions of tons of commodities during the ten months the Great Lakes are ice-free each year.
