About The Van Dusen Mansion

The Van Dusen Mansion was built in 1892 for George Washington Van Dusen and his wife, Nancy. Mr. Van Dusen was an entrepreneur who founded Minnesota's first and most prosperous grain firm in 1883. After Mr. Van Dusen passed away, his estate remained in the family for decades. In the 1940s it was sold and began serving a variety of commercial uses. Many years later the property was abandoned. In 1994, a city permit was issued to demolish the grand, historic structure. As fate would have it, two weeks before the demolition was to begin a heroic investor swept in, bought the property, and initiated an epic three year restoration project. Thanks to a brilliant architect, tireless craftspeople and tremendous resources, the Van Dusen Mansion was restored to its original splendor and earned distinction on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, the Van Dusen Mansion is an events center equipped for the 21st century. It is a beacon of old-world prosperity and elegance. In 1892, this treasured property was built to impress. Having now witnessed three centuries, the Van Dusen Mansion stands to impress once again, like never before.
