Biographical / Historical

Alger Smith and Company was a logging company. In 1898 they built a railroad called the Duluth and Northern Minnesota Railway, which interchanged cars with the Duluth and Iron Range Railway at Knife River. It was a common carrier railroad that transported passengers, freight, and forest products. Pine logs from across northern Minnesota traveled on this rail line to the company’s two large sawmills in Duluth. Alger Smith ended logging operations in 1921. Its 100 miles of railraod track were removed in 1923.
