Rich history in Hillside schools


Grant School was built in 1918 and has seen generations of Duluth children pass through its doors. Many of those who attended Grant as kids still live in the area. I had the opportunity to sit down with two individuals who went to Grant.

Kenneth Cusick, whom everyone calls Casey, is 49 and sent all of his three kids to Grant School.

Lilly Holdorsen, 90, started Grant School in 1923. She has three children, 11 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren. She spends her spare time painting.
