    Blackduck Reviews

    1 review
    Blackduck is a great small community. I grew up here and was well supported by both the school and the community. In fact, I loved it so much that I returned to be a teacher at my old high school. Sadly, the town is struggling as there are not many jobs in town. Some people live here as a bedroom community for Bemidji, MN. I would love to see more businesses move into town to help the town grow, but I know it is tough in such a small community.
