Historic Glensheen 1905-1930: Photographs from the Congdon Estate's first 25 Years

SKU 002165 Category

By Tony Dierckins Inside you will find 115 photographs– most never before seen by the public– of Glensheen, the historic Congdon estate along the shore of Lake Superior in Duluth, Minnesota. Many of the images were captured in 1909, the year the Congdons first moved in; they show the house newly decorated and the 22-acre estate just as Chester Congdon had envisioned. Later photos, taken after Chester’s death, show how Clara Congdon allowed the grounds to grow wild. 122 pages
