Recording the Stories of Our Norwegian Statehood Pioneers

One of the most important goals of the Norwegian Statehood Pioneer Project was to preserve the stories of the early days of our Norwegian ancestors in Minnesota.  It is also the only published record of the Sesquicentennial Celebration.

The second printing of the Heritage Book is now available for purchase. The book includes:

  • Foreword by Dr. Verlyn Anderson

  • Stories about Norwegian communities and pioneers from the 1850's through the 1890's

  • Over 125 biographies of Norwegians who lived in Minnesota in 1858 (submitted with Statehood Pioneer Applications).

  • A list of over 200 Century Pioneers who lived in Minnesota 1858-1908 (from Century Certificate applications).

  • A recap of the October Celebration, with photos and complete text of Dr. Odd Lovoll's Keynote Address.

  • Minnesota's St. Olav Medal winners.

  • Information about participating organizations

  • Complete name index in both last name and first name order
