Helpful Hands Prepare for ‘A Glensheen Christmas’
A Glensheen Christmas will Open Saturday, November 18 for Tours at the Historic Estate
DULUTH, Minn. – A crew of roughly 20 students and staff are working to deck the halls of the Glensheen Mansion in Duluth this week.
When touring through “A Glensheen Christmas,” guests will be able to experience 25 Christmas trees and hundreds of feet of garland.
Visitors will have the chance to find dozens of hidden elves during holiday tours.
Many decorations are originals used by the Congdon family.
Staff and volunteers say the tradition is special, being able to share a piece of the Congdon holiday tradition with the community.
“You can hear a little Christmas music in the background while we’re decorating; we’re very cheery! With the snow that came early this year and everybody’s kind of in the mood for Christmas already which is exciting,” said Barbara Boo, Manager of Visitor Services at Glensheen.
The Mansion is closed for visitors this week but will reopen Saturday, November 18 at 9:00 a.m.
