Fall at Glensheen is a magical time. We decided to elevate guest’s fall experience even more by offering local Duluth Cider & Wild State Cider available for purchase at our Cider Shack on Saturdays in September and October. Take some time to slow down, and enjoy the grounds with a local hard cider, or hot apple cider in hand.

WHY CIDER AT GLENSHEEN?
Did you know Chester Congdon loved apples? The Congdons have another mansion called the Congdon Castle out in Yakima Valley Washington. Here, Chester started the Congdon Orchards. ⁣
Congdon didn’t just like apples, he was obsessed with apples. He traveled all over the world researching different irrigation systems and learning about different types of apples.
So come down, take a tour, and enjoy a cider or two!
Want to skip the mansion tour and just come for the cider and to enjoy the grounds?
Purchase a $5 Grounds Admission as a non-tour guest. Guests 15 years & younger receive FREE Grounds Admission with the purchase of an adult Grounds Admission.
PLUS! A Grounds Admission gives you access to information on the outdoor educational signage and also fun facts about Glensheen you most likely didn’t know in the free Glensheen App.
