Glenn House

Glenn House

Victorian Life on the Mighty Mississippi.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Glenn House has many of its original architectural features as well as original plumbing fixtures, moldings and wall treatments. This home has been faithfully restored with authentic period furniture throughout. Each room is as it was at the turn of the twentieth century. Special events include the annual Christmas at the Glenn House.

The Glenn House was built in 1883 and was lived in by the David Glenn family until 1915. During the 1890s, electricity and plumbing were installed. In 1900, an extensive renovation was undertaken to convert the style of the house to a Queen Anne style. The home exemplifies the way a successful middle-class family would have lived at the turn of the century.

New in 2017! Hear the other side of the story with “Voices from the Backstairs,” bringing to life the experiences of the people who served the Glenn family with a newly restored servant’s quarters.

Mark your calendars for the Christmas tours at this Victorian house museum. Every year from Thanksgiving weekend through the weekend after Christmas, the festively decorated home is open for tours on Saturday and Sundays from 1-4 p.m., with additional candlelight tour dates throughout the holiday season.

The Glenn House is closed for the season and will reopen in May.
