[Now moved to the Paulucci Building 7/1/09]  Originally the Duluth Public Library, The Carnegie Building is monumental in it’s grand neo-classic design and venerable Presence on the Duluth, MN skyline. Constructed in 1901 & 1902, after a generous gift to the city by Andrew Carnegie, the 5 story high 40′ diameter rotunda has been meticulously restored to it’s stunning gold-leaf & oak grace by a consortium of personally-invested family owners.

After the present-day Duluth library was built on Superior St. downtown, The Carnegie Building barely avoided demolition in the late 1970′s. Then, concerned Duluth preservationist instigated a coordinated lobbying effort to save the landmark. The building was neglected and fell into a state of crumbled disrepair.

Following a large private investment, the building, beloved by generations of Duluthians, was placed on the National Register of Historic places and distinctive offices were created while preserving the structure’s historic character.

    It looks awesome Marty. It’s great to see aimClear having such success. No doubt due in large part to the Cabernet and Air Hockey.

    Thanks Mike. I hope you get up here for some Lake Superior sea kayaking, ice fishing, or WCHA UMD Bulldogs Hockey sometime.

    Tim,
    I’ve asked the building owners if they have a floor plan in electronic format and will let you know. :)

    Marty, the building is beautiful. I am a fan of classical architecture as I find most modern buildings to be cold and lifeless. It is wonderful to see historic buildings used for modern purposes instead of discarded or neglected.

    I already know I’ll miss this place. EXCITED about new space :)
