Titanic Related Spots in Minnesota Wisconsin

Mar 15, 2001
I am traveling to these two states in a few weeks and was wondering if there are any Titanic related spots in either state. Can anyone help?

Hi Darren,
The beautiful Walter and Mahala Douglas mansion, called Walden, is on Lake Minnetonka (just west of Minneapolis) and worthy of a visit. Someone posted a picture of it here once.
John and Nelle Pillsbury Snyder lived in a mansion in Wayzata, a wealthy town which is on the same lake. I wish I could be more specific.
About 100 miles SW of Minneapolis, there is the small town of Madelia, which was the birthplace of 'mystery man' gambler George Brereton/Brayton. I've never been there, but it's easy to find on a good map.
I'll let you know if I find out anything else. : )
