There have been people over the years that have made fun of our fair city. Granted we don’t have the longest summers but they are beautiful. There is a story that George Sherwood, one of the old time real estate men took an Eastern real estate developer up to the top of the hill to look out over the city. There he told him of all the advantages to investing in land in Duluth. He pointed to Minnesota Point and said: “There lies Minnesota Point. It looks like God’s arm protecting the town of Duluth.” To that the Easterner replied, “It looks to me more like God’s finger pointing the way out of town.”
