The Duluth Curling and Skating Club Arena was an indoor arena located in Duluth, Minnesota.  The arena opened in 1913 and served as an ice hockey rink in the upper level and 12 curling sheet in the lower level. The arena was the primary sheet of hockey ice for the community form 1913 to 1924 when the Duluth Ampitheater opened and from 1939 when the Ampitheater's roof failed to 1966 when the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center opened.  The arena was the first home of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs from 1946 to 1966.

The facility was one which required those sitting near the ice to pay close attention to the game as the seats started atop the boards and there wasn't any fencing or plexiglass to protect the crowd.
