Steve Overom, attorney for the City of Two Harbors is drafting an agreement to give the Lake County Historical Society control of a 0.3 acre plot of land near the Two Harbors Lighthouse. The contract will allow the society’s director, Mel Sando, to apply for grants to restore The Crusader II, a fishing boat that sits on the small parcel.


“We have been unable to secure grant funding,” Sando said, adding that the ownership of the land has also been an issue for granting agencies.
