It is a beautiful place to go visit, even for locals! I love to take my kids there for pictures, or even to just walk the grounds and look at all of the beautiful flowers and brick and stone structures!

Great history about Mayo. Definitely must see if you're interested in learning the history of Mayo Clinic.

They have an amazing botanical garden hidden in a lower level of the mansion. There was a wedding setting up Saturday so we didnt stay long but it was beautiful to walk through. Great views and they have tours of the House itself.

Not sure where you are with a falls. Downtown Plummer Building there is a large building with tall chimneys. It is the air-conditioner for all of the Mayo Clinic Buildings
