Handcrafted of native Duluth seam-faced bluestone, Enger Tower stands 75 feet tall on a peak within Enger Park, 583 feet above St. Louis Bay, and has provided panoramic views of the bay, Lake Superior and the St. Louis River for Duluthians and visitors alike since its 1939 erection.
St. Louis County recently reapplied for a permit to demolish the historic St. Louis County Jail and extended its contract with a real estate agent to April 30, 2010, to sell the jail. This delay creates an opportunity to save taxpayers literally millions of dollars.
Now that the Zeitgeist Arts Building “officially” has thrown open the doors to its Old Downtown digs, only one question remains: Does Progressive Action have enough members to keep it in the black for the long haul?
While St. Louis County commissioners cite a host of reasons for demolishing the old jail, it has been apparent from the beginning their commitment is more a matter of emotions than good business sense. Over a number of years, they have proposed demolition as the only acceptable fate of the jail.
Rather than sniping back and forth, preservationists and St. Louis County could both be focusing their energies on finding someone, anyone, willing to take on a building no one seems to want to use — or lose: The former county jail.
