On This Date in Minnesota History: August 24

August 24, 1910 – The building permits for the new steel plant near New Duluth were issued to the Minnesota Steel Company today. The cost is given as $10,000. The fee paid to the city by the steel corporation was $1,415.

The plans for the steel plant show 48 separate structures. The biggest is over 1,100 feet in length and a number have dimensions of 300 to 400 feet each way.

The application for the permits states that the buildings all will be of steel and concrete construction.
