Unique Real Estate: A Duluth Fixer-Upper

The historic St. Louis County jail may be demolished if a buyer can't be found. The county has spent nearly $250,000 over 6 months to maintain it, but so far no one has stepped forward to buy it. The asking price is only $60,000.

St. Louis county has applied again for a permit to tear it down. The last time it applied, the Duluth City Council rejected the permit but the state of the economy may mean that could change this time.

The jail, completed in 1923, is one of four governmental buildings and a monument that are part of the Duluth Civic Center Historic District.
