On This Date in Minnesota History: September 24

September 24, 1971 – The Duluth-Superior High Bridge, which connects Duluth, Minn., and Superior, Wis., was dedicated as the John A. Blatnik Bridge on this date.

Anyone remember Goldfine’s By The Bridge?

The Goldfine’s Department Store in 1962, an expansion made possible by the razing of the Garfield Ave. Residential District to make way for the High Bridge, later renamed the Blatnick Bridge. The store closed in 1979 and the building was later home to Goodwill Industries. (Image: Jeff Lemke, Twin Ports Rail History.)2




If you are interested in finding out more about your family history in Minnesota, I specialize in researching  genealogical and historical records in Minn. and western Wis., including:
census records,  birth records,  death certificates, obits, grave site photos, ship passenger lists, marriage records and declarations of intent/naturalization records.  I will visit locations to research local history and county records, as well as take photos. Quick turnaround on MNHS records.  Both short searches and family history reports.
