Things to Do
Virtually tour houses and honor our veterans.
Duluth Preservation Alliance (DPA) annual Historic Properties Tour. The virtual tour will feature three historic houses around the Zenith City. The virtual tours will be released online, one at a time, on Sunday Nov. 8 as well as Nov. 15 and Nov. 22. Tours will include exterior drone footage, 360 degree interior photography, and virtual walking tours hosted by the DPA’s long time board member Bob Berg. Many will recognize him as the enthusiastic and knowledgeable host of previous years’ historic neighborhood and architecture tours. If interested, sign up on the email list at duluthpreservation.org . Emails announcing each new tour will be sent each week as they are released. This event has long been the Duluth Preservation Alliance’s main fundraising event. In lieu of ticket entry costs, the DPA is asking for donations to help support the virtual tours and further their organization’s mission. Donations will be accepted online at the virtual property tours site. A $20 donation is suggested.
