Description:

 Built in 1898 the neighboring homes of Charles A. Weyerhaeuser and Richard "Drew" Musser are a physical reminder of the "Lumber Era" in Minnesota. Both houses were designed by architect Clarence Johnston, who, a few years later, also designed the Congdon Mansion (Glensheen) in Duluth, Minnesota.   The nine-acre estate, including both homes, was used by the Musser family until 25 years ago, and is now an event center and museum run by the non-profit group, The Friends of Linden Hill, Inc. The Weyerhaeuser home is our main museum site and furnished with original artifacts. We offer tours of both homes in the summer telling the stories of the families that lived here, the lumber industry in central Minnesota, and showcase the beautiful artifacts. The group also decorates the homes each Christmas season for 10 days and conducts self-guided tours. We host weddings, receptions, brunches, and other special events throughout the year. Visitors can even rent the entire Musser mansion for reunions, retreats, or weddings and stay overnight in the beautiful bedrooms.
