Chart of the Day: Duluth Population over Time

Here’s a chart from Perfect Duluth Day, my favorite website about the Zenith City, showing the population from 1860 to the most recent census:

Even more than the Twin Cities, Duluth was a real boom town. It’s crazy to imagine what living there must have been like when the population was growing exponentially. The population peaked in the 1960 census, but over the last decade or so, it has stopped declining.

    It’s a little crazy that Duluth still has a lower population than it did in 1920. It hasn’t “grown” in 100 years!

      The other thing is that Duluth didn’t “suburbanize” as much as other places. Hermantown, I guess, but its population is only 10K or so.
