Glensheen Mansion was built in 1905 by Chester Congdon, who died in 1916. His daughter Elisabeth inherited it. Sadly, Elisabeth was smothered by with her pillow as she slept and her nurse Velma Pietila was bludgeoned to death with a candlestick. Elisabeth’s adopted daughter Marjorie and her second husband Roger Caldwell were charged, but Marjorie was acquitted. Some say the deaths have led to hauntings at the estate.
