My First Time at Glensheen Was in The Dark
I've lived in Duluth well over 10 years and have not visited Glensheen Mansion, until this weekend.
My wife surprised me Saturday night with a date night that ended at Glensheen Mansion for a tour of the historic Congdon estate; this tour was unlike most tours because it was in the dark.
Flashlight tours started again at Glensheen in January and offered a fun way to see the mansion; two tour guides take you through the home pointing out interesting things with their flashlights as you go along.
Having never seen the home before it certainly was a fun way to see it for the first time, the tour guides did a great job of pointing out things in the dark and telling ghosts stories when appropriate.
I did find it strange that there was no mention of the murders that happened there, it seems that it would be a perfect opportunity to tell a truly scary story, but I can also understand why they avoid bringing it up.
If you've never seen Glensheen before I recommend trying the flashlight tour, it was fun and a great date night if you're looking for something different to do.
