Vesterheim Heritage Park Dedication

August 21 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Save the date! Vesterheim is planning a ceremony for the new Heritage Park. The event will include entertainment and light refreshments. Check back here for more details. Everyone is welcome.

More about the project:
Vesterheim traces its history back to Luther College in 1877. Luther President Laur Laursen had a bold and courageous dream—to begin collecting everyday objects of Norwegian immigrants. In line with this dream Laursen’s successor, C.K. Preus, created an open-air display beginning with the Egge-Koren log house. That display was eventually moved from Luther to Vesterheim’s downtown campus and continued to grow.

Now, Vesterheim has re-imagined this open-air display into Heritage Park, an important component of the museum’s collection. Find our more about this project here.

The history and 360 degrees images of each Heritage Park building are available here.
