The Clearview Building

The Clearview Building began as a general store and guest residences in the 1920’s. Today it is a central hub of commerce and community for Downtown Lutsen. Originally built by the Holst Hanson family, The Clearview Building has been owned by Jeff and Anna Latz since 1981. The building has been expanded and remodeled to fit the needs of the five local businesses that currently call Clearview their home.

Whether stopping by for business, or just to say “hello,” your neighbors at The Clearview Building welcome you to Downtown Lutsen.
