Most People Have No Clue This Beautiful Castle Is Hiding In Minnesota

Touring through the streets of Minneapolis, most people don’t realize the rich architectural history that is hiding within the city. Passing by gorgeous modern structures like the Walker Art Center and IDS, it’s hard to remember that Minnesota’s true architectural gems are those that have been around for much longer. One of those stunning gems is the Turnblad Mansion, a stunning castle on the grounds of the American Swedish Institute.

Have you visited the American Swedish Institute before? What was your favorite part?
