Welcome to 2010.
Another year in which to experience history. History continues to be a very important part of who we are. We rush about our daily tasks, and experiences and don’t give a thought to those that came before us. But their footprints are still there, whether seen or unseen. Those that came before us made it possible for us to do and be where we are today. If you don’t think history is important, just stop driving your car that Henry Ford invented, don’t get into the elevator that was invented by Otis, and for heaven sakes don’t fly in an airplane envisioned by the Wright Brothers. Each day we are in constant contact with history.
Everything we do today becomes history the minute we do it. History gives us a sense of who we were, who we are and who we are yet to become. That is why your Historical Society took on the bold move into the Historic Strickland House. It is one of the many places that Duluth’s history has deep roots. Our goal is to preserve your past while looking to your future.
Our membership year is January to January. Please join us and keep this history alive.
Our meetings are the second Tuesday of the month at 7 pm at the Historic Strickland House. We have many guest speakers and are planning programs and events all the time.
We have been closed for the month of January and reopen February 5-6, from 12-3 pm. For the winter months we are open only Friday and Saturday.
We change exhibits all during the year so we encourage you to visit often. We want your museum to reflect your past, present and future. Our newest exhibit is a presidential exhibit. We have a large quantity of books in the library on US Presidents and we encourage you to come and read them.
We will add an Olympic look back, and a visiting exhibit from the DAR on Georgia Day.
If you have an item, story, or picture of history, please share it with us.
