King Harald V of Norway and Queen Sonja intend to visit Duluth MN on October 17, 2011 for the rededication of the Enger Tower. The tower was originally dedicated in 1939 by his father, then-Crown Prince Olav.

Enger Tower is named for Bert Enger, a native of Norway who immigrated to Duluth and made a fortune selling furniture. The location of Enger Tower is 16th Avenue West and Skyline Parkway in Duluth Minnesota. It cost $30,000 to build and is 70 feet tall and six stories high. On a clear day visitors can see 31.4 miles from the top of the tower.

We don’t know if the King and Queen will stay at The Firelight Inn Duluth MN Bed and Breakfast but you can feel like a King and Queen when you stay with us on your next trip to Duluth!
