Guests of The Firelight Inn can enjoy free passes to the historic Glensheen Mansion tomorrow May 22, 2009. Make your reservation at The Firelight Inn today!
The historic Congdon estate was home to Chester and Clara Congdon. Chester A. Congdon worked as an attorney, a mining developer and a state legislator. He was raised in upstate New York and was instrumental in the development of iron ore mining in northeastern Minnesota. Much of what Duluth, Minnesota is today can be tracked to the business dealings of Mr. Congdon.
Glensheen closely resembles the way it looked nearly a century ago. Most of the unique fixtures and decor are original to the early 1900s.
Glensheen opened as a museum in 1979 and 30 years later free tours are offered on Friday, May 22, 2009 as a way of celebrating the enchantment of touring the mansion.
Tours are on a first come, first serve basis beginning at 9:30 a.m. and the last tour is at 4 p.m. Make your reservations at The Firelight Inn on Oregon Creek Bed and Breakfast in Duluth, MN and enjoy a complimentary tour on Friday.
