City Life

In Duluth, where individual Jews had appeared as early as 1869, a range of organizations did not emerge until after the city itself became a viable business center after the opening of the Mesabi Iron Range in the 1890s. The earliest arrivals, fairly Americanized Jews from the eastern United States, established businesses and bought houses in the affluent area east of Lake Avenue. Decades later the eastern Europeans laborers settled in the city’s West End, many of them renting low-cost housing between 12th and 24th Avenues. Never numerous, Duluth Jews totaled at their height in the 1930s about 4,000 people.
