Fond Du Lac is the area connecting the St. Louis River and Wrenshall Road (Highway 23) bridge. Fond Du Lac was originally an Indian village, before becoming a fur-trading post. In 1834, a mission and school were established by Reverend Edmund F. Ely, whose wife, in 1835, gave birth to the settlement's first white child.
Fond du Lac is a neighborhood in Duluth, Minnesota, United States nestled along Evergreen Memorial Highway (also known as Highway 23 or W 3rd St) and the St. Louis River.
The Fond Du Lac area was the site of an Ojibwe settlement in the 16th through 19th centuries. The American Fur Company established a trading post there in 1817 and operated until 1842 when it was sold to the Missouri Fur Company. The Missouri Fur Company operated the trading post for six more years after that. Mission Creek was named for an Ojibwe mission located here in the 1830s. Fond Du Lac was the site where the 1854 Treaty of La Pointe was signed. The village of Fond Du Lac was platted in 1856, incorporated in 1857, and annexed by Duluth in 1895.
