  3. Secrets of Glensheen

    Secrets of Glensheen

    3300 London Rd
    Duluth, MN 55804
    Call: (218) 726-8910

    In honor of kicking off Nerdy November, Glensheen is starting a new Wednesday night series called The Secrets of Glensheen.

    Glensheen Collections Manager, Milissa Brooks Ojibway, will showcase various objects from the Glensheen collection that have been hidden out of sight to visitors.

    As Glensheen's Collections Manager Milissa is responsible for the proper care and preservation of the objects in the mansion. Therefore, she sees all of the cool and interesting objects in Glensheen's collection every day. More often than not, these are objects that the public rarely has the opportunity to see.

    Milissa will give an in-depth history of each object and maybe why the Congdon family has it.

    Guests will have the opportunity to ask questions and get up close with these rarely-seen objects.

    Secrets of Glensheen will take place every Wednesday night in November from 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm.

    Secrets of Glensheen is free and open to the public.

    Guests will enter at the front door of the mansion. The event will take place in the Amusement Room.

  4. Whiskey Wednesdays

    Whiskey Wednesdays

    3300 London Rd
    Duluth, MN 55804
    Call: (218) 726-8910

    Thanks to a partnership with Grandma's Restaurant, Whiskey Wednesdays is a collaborative event series enjoyed by both the first-time whiskey drinker and the seasoned scotch fan.

    Whiskey Wednesdays are every Wednesday in the month of October from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm. The event is free and open to the public. A cash bar with beverages available for purchase will be present.

    In addition, there will be a bonfire set up by the lake, so can you can sit by the fire and sip your whiskey.

    So why whiskey? Here's the tie-in to Glensheen: Chester Congdon served as a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives in 1909 and 1911. This was during the movement to start prohibition, and Chester voted against prohibition in every version that came before him.

    As a fun way to explore this unique part of American history and in honor of Chester's support of booze, we have created Whiskey Wednesdays.

    One of the most common drinks of the time - whiskey.

    While common, however, whiskey was not thought of as a sophisticated drink of the wealthy. In addition, there are persistent rumors that Clara Congdon was against booze.

    Whiskey Wednesdays will take place in the newly opened Garage with seating outside by Lake Superior. We encourage you to take your beverage and explore the estate with a drink in hand.
