Valdres House

Øystre Slidre, Valdres, Norway (1795)

A modest landowner’s home built with traditional labor-intensive log construction methods. Five of six children raised in this house left for frontiers in the United States and Canada at the height of emigration in the late 1800s. The house was moved from Norway to Vesterheim in 1975.
