Since Saturday, Nov. 12, 2011, visitors have been experiencing ASI and the Turnblad Mansion in a whole new way! Come along with a group and see the newly renovated areas of the American Swedish Institute’s campus…
These visitors have just entered through the new link, and after checking in at the reception desk, they are ready to start their tour by heading down to the Mansion’s lower level. They decide to use the new elevator, located in the new link between the Mansion, Carriage House, and what will be the Nelson Cultural Center.
The first thing they see when they exit the elevator on the lower level is the Posten Window. The window was originally part of Swan Turnblad’s office building in downtown Minneapolis, where the newspaper Svenska Amerikanska Posten (The Swedish American Post) was printed. Between 1983 and 2011, the window was located in the small courtyard between the Carriage House and the Mansion. The group is excited to see the window in such a prominent place for all to see!
