Places of Interest in Cloquet Minnesota
Frank Lloyd Wright Gas Station - Hwy. and Cloquet Ave., Cloquet is the only American community that can boast of having a service station designed b Frank Lloyd Wright. Designed in 1956, the station was built in 1958.
Wright had previously designed and built a house for Ray Lindholm, and when Lindholm decided to rebuild a Phillips 66 Gas Station, Wright was eager to offer
his services. He had designed a gas station several years earlier for his Broadacre City project, but it hadn't been built.
The station is a three levl steel and cement blockstructure. Above themain office, an angular, glass walled observation lounge hovers.
The "Old Deetz Slate Mine Quarry" - was the first business in Carlton County according to the 1858 survey map and was in operation from 1854 to 1911 under the direction of Levi Deetz. The quarry produced high quality roofing slate which
provided material for many of the significant building projects in the surrounding area including Duluth. In 1892, "Slateville" was created to provide
housing for workers in the quarry. The quarry was mined to a depth of approximately 100 feet and contained tunnels.
Although presently filled with water, the steep quarry walls are visible and an historical marker is at the site.
