New life for weathered Duluth building | Duluth News Tribune | Duluth, Minnesota

It wasn’t until after the couple bought the two-story, 3,740-square-foot structure that they learned it had been the Duluth Weather Bureau building from 1904 to 1950. They also learned the Incline Railway tramway had run along the 400-foot-long property on its way up the hill to a grand pavilion that burned a few years before the weather bureau building was built.

“That history just made it more exciting,” said Teri Gunnarson, a physician for Essentia Health.

The Gunnarsons have embraced that history, meticulously reusing bricks and wood flooring removed during demolition and bringing in other reclaimed materials to add character to what is now a modern, cutting-edge home with geothermal and solar energy systems.
