This is the story of people and places lost to history; of mysterious ruins, forgotten markers and outdated industries; of what was back then. This is the story of "Lost Duluth."

The roots of Duluth began at an Ojibwe settlement along the St. Louis River and with the arrival of European settlers grew to eleven townships in all; they stretched from Fond du Lac to Lester Park. From Duluth's humble beginnings sprang industry after industry, including a harbor busier than any other in the United States, including the port of New York.

Duluth embodied the unbridled American optimism for the future. Her earliest settlers were explorers, dreamers, and leaders along with the common man looking for a better future for his children. What became of these people, their homes and businesses? Across Duluth there are clues, if you know where to look, where the earliest history of the Zenith City is waiting to be rediscovered. Based on a new book from Zenith City Press, the story of "Lost Duluth" comes to life in this documentary.
