Beautiful setting in Scandia. Full of history of the first settlers to this area of the country where they settled. It shows how they lived, their clothes, their dishes, tools, farm buildings, wagons, sleds made butter, had ice boxes, how they cooked etc. Very rich in the Scandinavian immigrant culture and way of life. They celebrate the traditions and holidays on this site as did their forefathers.
Wonderful experience - what a lot of fun information on the Swedish immigrant in early Minnesota.
A hidden gem. A must for anyone who wants to know the Scandinavian immigrant story.
Lots of fun!
