In Trunks, Hands, and Hearts: What Norwegian Immigrants Brought to the United States

October 22, 2021 | 8:00 p.m. CT

Sons of Norway, Boulder, CO

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 Erik Sirnes for a Zoom link: eriksirnes@hotmail.com.

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.
