Carnegie Library — Superior, Wisconsin

Carnegie Library — Superior, Wisconsin

Although this is not a Minnesota place, it was just across the bridge from Duluth, so I took the opportunity to visit Superior, Wisconsin to snap a few pics.

Built in 1901, this is one of two Carnegie libraries in Superior.  It is on Hammond Avenue in a working class part of town.  It is presently vacant and undergoing restoration.

You can read much more about this library here.

This was the main library in Superior until 1991. Believe it or not, the City Council voted to demolish this building, but the destruction was stopped via restraining order.
