Marking an Oldenburg Moment in Time with an Official Proclamation

The transformation of the Oldenburg House in Carlton has been a thing of beauty. On Saturday I wrote about that very special evening of music featuring Pippi Ardennia, Glenn Swanson and friends. It's primary aim was a thank you to all who helped with the renovation of this grand old house in preparation for the next chapter in its story.

In addition to continuing as a Bed & Breakfast, during the months ahead the Swansons aim to host three-course dinner parties with live jazz. Upcoming shows are scheduled for August 19 & 20 and September 29 & 30. Book your Carlton Room reservations here at the Oldenburg House website.
Glenn and Emily prepare to read the Proclamation.


the historic and timeless setting known as Oldenburg House has since its founding in 1894 drawn together people of goodwill to conserve this region's history and beauty;

the talents, creativity, ethical practices and industriousness of the skilled craftspeople contributing to the ‘2017 reimagining of Oldenburg House’ have set the stage for a very bright future;

the generosity of spirit expressed by these skilled artisans and advisors has strengthened Oldenburg House and will be clearly recognized in all its future endeavors and activities;

Glenn and Emily Swanson do hereby honor and express their heartfelt appreciation, warm friendship and love for all who so graciously supported this effort.
