Cloquet, Minnesota, is the largest city in Carlton
County. Located just north of Interstate 35, it's
about 20 miles west of Duluth and Lake Superior. The
Carlton County Historical Society has been instrumental
in commissioning a number of murals depicting historical
events and locations in and around Carlton County.
This beautiful 16 x 60-foot mural by Fleta Carol was
completed in summer, 2003, and depicts a 1890s steam
engine leaving a logging operation and crossing a
bridge constructed of massive timbers.
The mural is on an exterior wall of the Korman Law
office building at 1102 Cloquet Avenue. There are
several other murals gracing walls in downtown Cloquet,
