Garrison Keillor's Mansion


Our man GK is making that fa sho' dough. Seven bedrooms? Daaaamn.

"The house is so grand that Mr. Keillor and his wife, Jenny Lind Nilsson, a violinist in the Minnesota Opera orchestra, feared their friends might consider them pretentious for buying it. Ultimately, the beauty and spaciousness of the house, which was built in 1914 by the French architect Emmanuel Masqueray, persuaded them."


(Sidenote: what is it with people in public radio and ACTUALLY DRIVING VOLVOS? That's like the junior senator from Mississippi showing up for a hearing in denim overalls.)
