The home is called the Sibley House. It's an old stone home that is still standing today.  I feel like maybe they made things a little more sound back then than they do today.  At least in some aspects.

This house is located a little off the beaten path on a country road in Mendota Heights.  It's location is 1357 Sibley Memorial Highway. If it sounds familiar, well that might be because it was built in 1836 and was the residence for Henry Hastings Sibley.  He was a fur trader, but was also Minnesota's first governor.

Since then, the house has actually been used for several different things such as a Catholic school, an art school and even a place for travelers to stay.  At one point it was kind of falling apart, but then was restored.  After the restoration project, it was opened to the public as a tourist attraction.  The house is cared for and run by the Minnesota Historical Society.  And there are actually some other homes around the area that you can tour.  Please check ahead of time to book a tour, as some are closed for the season.  The Sibley House is one of those - temporarily closed so it's a drive by for now.

If you need something to do in the next few months ('cuz, Winter) take a road trip.
