Whiskey Wednesdays are every Wednesday in October at Glensheen. The event is free and drinks are available for purchase. In addition to whiskey, there will be beer, wine and non-alcoholic options.
Picnics and food delivery are allowed, but a food truck will also be available.
One of the most common drinks of the Congdons’ time was whiskey. However, whiskey was not commonly thought of as the sophisticated drink of the wealthy. So in keeping with that history, Glensheen presents Whiskey Wednesdays in its garage, a space used by the servants. Chester Congdon served as a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives in 1909 and 1911. This was during the movement to start Prohibition and Congdon voted against Prohibition in every version that came before him.
Glensheen is following guidance and safety procedures issued by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, State of Minnesota, University of Minnesota, and the American Alliance of Museums.
