Join your neighbors in Morgan Park as they celebrate the neighborhood's centennial.

The Morgan Park neighborhood was a planned community built by U.S. Steel and remains as a vibrant part of Duluth's history. Residents will celebrate the "model city" that was named for J.P. Morgan in June 1914. A large part of the neighborhood's identity is the Lake View Store, 1096 88th Ave. W., which is billed as America's first indoor mall, built in 1915.
