Wednesday, November 30, 2022:  Historic Glensheen Mansion, Duluth, MN. 
Built in 1908 at a cost of $154,000, the Chester Congdon family lived in this 20,000 square foot, 39 room home.
About a dozen servants were employed at any given time for the family of nine. 
It is worth $22 million today.  That includes twelve acres of property on the north shore of Lake Superior
The estate was given to the University of Duluth in 1968, which operates it today. 

One of the living rooms, decorated for Christmas.

The main dining room.

A pool table in the lower level recreation area.

A bed in the main bedroom is a bit small by today's standards.

The attic was filled with treasures.

Deep Diver Paula was a bit worried about this shark near the shoreline.

Quote of the day:   Paula and I love Duluth.  Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
