DULUTH, Minn. – A Duluth landmark is seeing a record number of visitors.

In 2015, Glensheen Mansion had the highest tour numbers the estate had experienced since the 1980s.

According to Marketing Manager Jane Pederson, in 2016 the numbers were more than 20,000 higher than in 2015.

Glensheen has started hosting events on Wednesday nights, with a different theme each month.
