With Restauration through Hell Gate to The Promised Land

On November 8, Vesterheim held a free webinar featuring Norwegian storyteller Anne Elisebeth Skogen, who joined us live from Ryfylkemuseet at Sand, Norway to tell the fascinating story of the first organized group of Norwegian emigrants who sailed to America on the sloop Restauration. Thank you to Vesterheim Trustee and Slooper Society Vice President Kirk Mies for co-hosting this event!
