Sip Whiskey at Glensheen Mansion
Though there are a great many reasons to visit the beautiful and historic Glensheen Mansion, whiskey Wednesdays are as good an excuse as any. Glensheen Mansion is Minnesota’s most visited historic home, offering an exquisite glimpse into Duluth’s past. Glensheen Mansion, also known as the historic Congdon Estate, as an exquisite waterfront home on Lake Superior. The home, built in the Jacobean style, was once owned by Duluth resident Chester A. Congdon. Glensheen Mansion offers a variety of tours, both seasonal and year-round, and will provide you with a glimpse into some of the most beautiful and historically significant arts and crafts interiors in the country.
After you take a tour of Glensheen Mansion, we suggest you join locals and visitors at Whiskey Wednesdays; a chance to experience the historic mansion like never before. Whether a first-time whiskey drinker or a whiskey connoisseur, you’ll enjoy the evening. Chester A. Congdon himself, once a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives, voted against Prohibition–seemingly in favor of fine spirits like whiskey. These fun events are free and open to the public with a cash bar, and are held in Glensheen’s newly renovated mansion overlooking Lake Superior.
After your spirited evening, come home and relax in the luxurious accommodations found at Duluth’s finest Bed and Breakfast. The elegance and sophistication of the A.G. Thomson House Bed and Breakfast, reminiscent of that found at the Glensheen Mansion, will provide you the perfect backdrop to your Duluth getaway. Book your stay with us today.
