Glensheen Mansion's Gowns of Glensheen Exhibit

Dates: June 14 - June 30
Time: 9:00 am
(218) 726-8925 • Visit Website

In the Gowns of Glensheen exhibit, guests will see smashing party dresses, ravishing fur coats, and first-class gowns displayed among the stunning interiors of the 39-room mansion. As a special offering to our summer-touring guests, the Gowns of Glensheen exhibit will be included in guest’s tour price for no additional fee. There is a Gowns of Glensheen dossier (a collection of documents about a particular person, event, or subject) to help guide guests through the mansion while detailing dresses and telling stories of the time along the way. The gowns that are in the Gowns of Glensheen exhibit have been in the drawers of the Glensheen collection for years and are making their long-awaited debut to the public this summer. While we don’t have photographic proof that some dresses were worn by the Congdon women, (Darn you, Facebook, where were you then?) we do have proof that Congdon women wore a few. For example, there is a photo of Clara Congdon in the Master Bedroom wearing the dress she wore to her son’s wedding in 1914… and we have it on display for Gowns of Glensheen! Not only will there be gorgeous gowns to admire in the exhibit, guests will also see coats made of the same fur that kings would wear and a tux of Chester Congdon’s. Many of the fabrics or embellishments on the pieces in this exhibit are made from animal fur or feathers. One dress even has ostrich feathers! During this time it was very common that luxury clothing incorporated these. The Gowns of Glensheen Dossier also includes excerpts from Clara Congdon’s diary, and knowledge nuggets such as explaining the process of how silk is made. Did you know silk is basically worm spit? Or how many rhinestones and beads are on a dress? There is a dress with 15,278 rhinestones and beads on it! Guests will also learn about the dressing process women endured and the layers of undergarments worn to achieve a waist as tiny as 18 inches! Held at 3300 London Road in Duluth.
