Join Sons of Norway Nidaros Lodge # 1-001 (west Minneapolis) and Vesterheim Collection Manager Jennifer Kovarik to explore the immigrant experience through stories associated with artifacts in Vesterheim’s collection. Between 1825 and 1980, nearly one million Norwegians left for new lives in America. We’ll consider the reasons for leaving, what they brought, and where they settled.
This is an open meeting. Visitors wishing to attend may contact the Sons of Norway Nidaros Lodge President Carolyn Townsend for a Zoom link: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vesterheim staff members can give presentations to cultural, community, and church groups on a variety of topics. Find more information about presentation options and how to schedule one for your group here.
