Visit Glensheen

“I think Glensheen has spirit because it was created by people who were loving their family, not just loving their home.” Granddaughter of Chester and Clara Congdon

Glensheen, a historic estate on the shores of Lake Superior, offers a slice of turn-of-the-last-century opulence. Its 1908 collection is intact, completely immersing you in the life of one of Minnesota’s most influential families.

Beyond the 39-room mansion, visitors can also explore seven-acres of formal gardens and working vegetable gardens, the tennis court and bowling green, and the carriage house featuring the Congdons’ carriages and Glensheen’s Museum Shop.

Open year-round.
