1. Illumination History of the Aerial Lift Bridge Marker
Inscription. The first lighting was on November 20, 1970, made possible through the contributions of Duluth school children, citizens, business people and visitors.

The present dramatic lighting, first seen on July 4, 1987, is made possible through a generous gift from the Rotary Club of Duluth, Club # 25. It symbolizes the warm welcome extended by Duluth citizens to ships and visitors from around the world.

Both projects were coordinated by the City of Duluth, which owns and operates the Bridge.
