Alexander Ramsey is one of the true goosebumpers of history along with the Zodiac Killer and Jeff Dahmer. I have heard from historians that in life he was very similar to the creeper from the Jeepers Creepers films. That said, I did not get many frights in this haunted house. I thought maybe they could have had one of those mystery boxes where you reach in and think it is eyeballs but it is actually peeled grapes.

We made a little detour while passing through Minneapolis so we could see Fitzgerald's childhood home. The house was gorgeous, but sadly it's a private residence so you cannot look inside. Park outside on the street and walk up and down Laurel Avenue to check out some of the other beautiful homes, the park, and the athletic club at the end of the avenue.

I was in Minneapolis to tour U of M with my son and decided to visit this place when we had some free time. Since I'm from Southern California, I was unaware of who James J. Hill was until I Googled him. The tour was very informational and were able to see about 80% of this spectacular residence. Bev was our guide and she was absolutely wonderful! I would highly recommend taking the tour with her. You'll pick up some interesting tidbits of how the wealthy lived in those days.
