Turnblad Mansion: In 1903 Swan J. Turnblad, a Swedish-American newspaper publisher, commissioned a 30 room mansion in Park Avenue, Minneapolis. After Turnblad's wife died in 1929, he and his daughter moved across the street and turned their former home into a museum creating the American Swedish Institute, which was housed in his former residence, as a place to preserve Swedish customs and culture.
