Superior/Twinports Heritage

Superior is filled with Heritage, but we are slowly loosing that Heritage. Buildings that were once a central part of what Superior was are slowly being torn down. Central High school, the palace theater, are just 2 of those buildings. We are also loosing the people who watched this city grow. So much has happened in the twin ports area in the last 100 years, and we are slowly loosing the capacity to look back on that history.This is the reason behind the organization of A small Group of people who have come together and are working on the preservation of the twin ports Heritage. This group is call 100 & Going Strong!
The Group currently consists of people of different age groups,backgrounds, but we are all looking for one thing. To preserve our local History!
To do this the group is working on a celebration slated for the last weekend in September. A Birthday celebration if you will. A celebration of all things that turn 100 this year Just in Superior,. The Winter street depot located at 1615 winter street turns 100, as well as the ELK"S LODGE. In Duluth Glensheen is 100, splitrock lighthouse is 100, and nationally The Model T was born September 27th, 1908,and the list goes on and on.
!00 and growing Strong's celebration will be a weekend of events,celebrating all things that turn 100 this year.
