One of the most impressive mansions in Minnesota draws crowds with its beauty and its notorious past. – In Short
The 7.6-acre, 1900-era neo-Jacobean estate built by Chester Congdon ranks among the state's most beautiful pieces of real estate. Congdon and his wife, Clara, designed this mansion for their large family. Glensheen's 39 rooms still have many of the original furnishings and boast stunning views of Lake Superior. There are guided and unguided grounds tours, including a bedroom-slipper tour, for which you wear slippers and walk behind the ropes.

You won't be disapointed – We went for our school feild trip and it was the most awesome thing that I ever saw!!! It is so beautiful!!! But you should read the book about the murders before you go so during the tour you know which rooms and which steps that they were murdered in!!! It was awesome!! I would go again and again and again!!!!!!!! Please visit and find out for yourself!!!

You'll like this mansion – This is a great tour for anyone who likes history, interior decor, architecture or just walking around someone else's house. You get a tour of the first 3 floors for $9.50 or a total tour of all 5 floors for $18.00. This was the setting to a 70's Patty Duke movie "You'll Like My Mother" and the sight of a real life murder...but don't ask your tour guide about the murders. They're not allowed to talk about them. Walk around the grounds and see their formal gardens, carrige house, boat house and a gorgeous view of lake superior. This is well worth the money. Younger children may not have the patience, however, and may feel stifled in the "don't touch a single thing" atmosphere.
