DULUTH, Minn. — Two of Duluth's lighthouses are now federally famous after being added to the National Register of Historic Places. The Duluth Harbor North Pier Light and the Duluth Entry South Breakwater Outer Light — the beacons on either end of the ship canal — gained the recognition in June. The North Pier Light, operational since 1910, is the black-and-white lighthouse on the mainland side of the Aerial Lift Bridge. The beacon can shine 16 miles in clear weather, and the 37-foot-tall structure still is used for navigation.
DULUTH, Minn. — There's a new brewery in town, and it delivers — though don't expect lagers or ales to start showing up at your door. This startup bottles lively teas that are, in fact, alive. Rachelle Rahn founded Duluth Kombucha this spring after she started brewing the fermented tea for herself, and she's since sold gallons of the stuff using only social media and word of mouth. "I'm such a DIYer," said the 24-year-old. "I'm always curious about how things are made."
