Episode 24: Solo History Lesson #2 - Duluth's Aerial Lift Bridge

It's now Stay at Home time, and that means a little change (hopefully very temporarily) to the podcast format. Jaye will be bringing you some North Shore History Lessons, solo for now until it's safe once again to venture out and explore and see other people. *Duluth became the proud home to the United States’ first transporter bridge in 1905. Then, the Aerial Bridge, just a ferry bridge at this point, was constructed in the harbor. Later, it was converted from a ferry bridge to the present-day bridge in 1929. The Aerial Lift Bridge spans the Duluth Ship Canal which leads iron ore ships into the Twin Ports from Lake Superior. The bridge connects the Canal Park and Park Point for car travel. Learn more about the history of this iconic piece of the North Shore in this week's solo history lesson.*This episode is sponsored by Cascade Vacation Rentals.
