- Google Earth view of the approximate ECD line in Duluth. (The line should be moved slightly SE-ward.)
- The Divide line runs along the hill to the south of the New City Hall, very close to the gazebo.
- Proposed monument identifying the Divide in Duluth.
For a .pdf file of the proposed monument see (HERE). West Lawrenceville Street....
- The 'hump' in the road clearly shows the Divide.
- Looking east along the Divide at the Old City Hall.
- Looking west, the Divide runs to the left of the New City Hall.
- An ECD Survey marker in front of the Duluth Old City Hall.
- Glenn Coyne and Chris McGahee stand on the Old City Hall steps with a 'crack' denoting the Divide!

The monument as seen from Google Earth
The Divide precedes westward from the Monument
- The ECD runs along the south edge of the Mall
- And along a knoll near the New City Hall
- Veteran's Day
- And then through Taylor Park.
- Parking for the New City Hall behind the park seems to have been cut right into the Divide.
- The Divide continues on westward through a cemetery (There are possibly 'hundreds' of cemeteries on the ECD.)
- Cemeteries historically are located on 'high ground'. (A.K.A. 'boot hill').
- The white house across the street appears to be on the Divide.
The closed part of Peachtree Road NW begins at the Southeastern Railway Museum south of Duluth runs one mile NE.
- The restored Duluth Depot at the Railway Museum.
- This road on the ECD is walkable, and the pavement may be the oldest surviving of the original Peachtree Road.
