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

May 24, 2022 | 7:00 p.m. (CT)

Location: Central Lutheran Church in Grace Hall, 259 W Wabasha St, Winona, MN

Join Sons of Norway Nor-Win Lodge # 1-505 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.

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.

Contact for more information: Sons of Norway Nor-Win Lodge program director, Don Klagge, dgklagge@gmail.com.
