While at Crow Wing State Park in Minnesota we came upon this house.
We were pretty interested in it and really wanted to see what was inside. However, the house was locked up tight.
We had to settle with just looking in the windows and we found it really was not suitable for inside exploration.
You can see the interesting building techniques of the inner walls, mud and sticks. Also some remnants of very old wallpaper, all in a state of decay…very dilapidated on the inside. I do believe it is still in the process of restoration.
It really looks pretty good from the outside and was considered quite palatial by frontier standards. The house was owned by Clement Beaulieu. Mr. Beaulieu was one of the best known traders of the area and is credited by some to be they ‘founder’ of the town of Crow Wing. This house is protected by the State of Minnesota as a historical site.
