glensheenFun historic photo of our boathouse and pier when it was full length. Notice how the pier creates a cove. Also notice the wooden bench. #glensheen #housemuseum #housemuseummn #mnhistory #duluthhistory
- superiordanwInteresting that the bench is of 'rustic' construction.
- glensheenIt is one of our unsolved mysteries. Why such a different style
- tukuastodolaLoved the boathouse
- glensheen@superiordanw yes! We think it also feels like a state park style bench. Making it a sharp contrast to the formal garden and mansion.
- phoenixfoxhawkeMaybe it was intended to mirror the rustic bridges along the western trail system, and signify to visitors that it all began right there along the shore? @glensheen
- glensheen@phoenixfoxhawke that is a real possibility!
- sarah_elle_designsI really love this one. How interesting to look at it way bak when.
