“I’m very excited about all the new stuff that the Glensheen is offering which are free or very low priced. I believe we, the locals, needed this in our area as everything is so expensive and tourist priced especially this time of year.

Secrets of Glensheen

Secrets of Glensheen is BACK by popular demand!

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

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 the public rarely has the opportunity to see.

Milissa will give an in-depth history of each object and perhaps even why the Congdon family acquired the item.

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


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

Whiskey Wednesdays

Whiskey Wednesdays is a collaborative event in partnership with Grandma’s Restaurants meant for everyone from the first-time whiskey drinker or the seasoned scotch fan.

Chester Congdon served from 1881 until 1886 as assistant United States attorney for the district of Minnesota, as a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives in 1909 and 1911. This was during the height of prohibition and Chester voted against prohibition, more than once. In honor of his support of booze, we have created Whiskey Wednesdays.

One of the most common drinks of the time – was Whiskey. Whiskey though was not commonly thought of as the sophisticated drink of the wealthy. In addition there are persistent rumors that Clara Congdon was against booze. So in keeping with that history… we serve Whiskey Wednesdays in our newly reopened garage.

So sip on a whiskey while in a historically impactful environment with close friends and family.


The event is free and open to the public with a cash bar. Whiskey Wednesdays are every Wednesday in the month of October from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm.

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