Glensheen, the historic Congdon estate
A hallmark of extraordinary design. A businessman's enduring legacy. A showcase of diverse interior styles. But at its very heart, a family home. Welcome to Glensheen, the historic Congdon estate. Along the shore of Lake Superior, a 7.6 acre expanse of wooded land enfolds the 39 room Jacobean Revival mansion that is Minnesota's premier historic site. The interiors of the mansion have endured, boasting nearly all of the same furnishings and decor that graced the rooms when estate was completed in 1908. Even the formal gardens and naturalistic landscape retain much of their original design. Here, visitors are given a fascinating look at life in an affluent family home from the turn of the last century.
Glensheen is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a Partner Place of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
