Biographical / Historical

Joseph Bullen came to the Duluth area in 1853 to found a permanent settlement. He made claim to Minnesota Point and the present site of Duluth, although this was Indian Territory at the time. He also made legal claim to the shores of Allouez Bay, up Left Hand River and up the shores of St. Louis Bay. He was sent by eastern businessmen who believed the area could be economically viable.
