This small village display has been at Viewcrest Health Center for the past five years. Village North members Linda and David Spears change the display seasonally, four times a year. Residents and family members continue to enjoy visiting the display in the health centers lobby. Viewcrest is located in the Piedmont neighborhood of Duluth, MN.

 There is a new Dept. 56 Dickens' Village display at Aftenro Home, Duluth, MN. Members of Village North Collectors Club constructed the display in memory of club member Don Johnson. Don donated his village to the club. The display is located in the Living Room of the facility. Click here to view the full album of this display.
