Minnesota - Two Harbors

Two Harbors

This is the oldest Highway 61 gets along 7th Avenue, on the northeast corner at 7th Street.

Want older? We can go older. The library was built in 1909 on the southeast corner of 6th Street and 4th Avenue.

Older still, the United Church of Two Harbors built their third church in 1906. The second burned down in 1905, and I'm too lazy to look up the rest.

Speaking of 1905 and previous buildings burning down, the original Lake County Court House burned down in 1904, so they built a new one the next year. It's just across from the United Church and somehow each was destroyed by a different fire but in consecutive years.

A boat, a car, a light: Two Harbors Lighthouse. It's the oldest operating lighthouse in Minnesota, from 1892 through becoming a bed and breakfast. Even older than the Chevy parked out front, the Crusader II was a herring boat built in 1939, "moored" here as an homage to the Lake Superior fishing industry.
