Might add some other spelling options for Duluth. For some strange reason, I thought there was an e in it.

I spent a good minute thinking to myself what's that hamlet with the really weird name that they take Phil to. I finally came up with Gobbler's Knob. Then I realized that you are looking for the better known place. You might want to accept Gobbler's Knob as an alternate answer.
