Lake Co. Past: August 9From Lake County newspaper archives.
NEW AUTO IN TOWN
Messrs. F. E. Evans, Pat Conliff, Ed W. Conliff, Theo G. Johnson and G. W. Small went to Minneapolis Thursday evening and returned with a new Mitchell auto, belonging to the latter. On account of engine trouble and the fact that nearly every town along the road was doing road work, the better part of two days was required to make the trip.
TO BE HELD
Notice is being given that a special election will be held in Lake County School District on August 31, 1938, for the purpose of voting on the proposition of issuing to the State of Minnesota the bonds of said municipality in the aggregate sum of $185,000 to be used for the purpose of building an addition to the Two Harbors High School building.
Attendance at the historical museum this summer was almost double that of the previous year with a total of 6,421 registered through July compared to 3,402 for that period in 1962. Making the decision to keep the museum open Sunday afternoons was a major factor in the big registration jump. Visitors included some from England, Ireland, Indonesia, Sweden and Japan.
TWO HARBORS DOCKS RANK FIRST
Two Harbors was the busiest taconite port on the Great Lakes this year through June, according to figures from the American Iron Ore Association. The Duluth Missabe & Iron Range Railway docks in Two Harbors led all ports for the month and in year-to-date figures, roughly doubling the amount of ore shipped through the railroad’s Duluth docks and more than doubling last year’s Two Harbors pace.
