Whether you are someone who goes over the top for the holidays or you just like seeing what other people have done Glensheen Mansion is the place to be this holiday season. A lot has happened over the last year, but one thing stays the same the beauty of Glensheen for the holidays.

This self guided tour will take you past 25 different Christmas trees spread throughout the mansion. Can you even imagine the task of decorating that many trees on top of other decorations and displays throughout the mansion. This is why they have to close for a week before to give all the elves and other helpers a chance to get everything done.

Christmas was very important to the Congdon family and although they did not decorate with 25 different trees for the holidays they would return to their home in Duluth every year to celebrate Christmas here, so this is a nice tribute to the family and it's long standing city of the north holiday celebration.
