DULUTH — Duluth’s replica Viking ship could finally have a suitable home by the end of this year. A site for the 42-foot vessel to go on permanent sheltered display will likely be secured Monday, when the Duluth City Council takes up a resolution authorizing the city to lease a triangular parcel of land from Minnesota Department of Transportation at an annual cost of $100. Preservationists already have raised about $100,000 to build a glassed-in pavilion on the site, but Neill Atkins, who has spearheaded the effort to put the ship on proper display, said it will likely take another $50,0
