We visited the Otter Tail County Historical Society in Fergus Falls this morning. They have an exhibition about western Norwegians in the USA: about leaving home and finding another between deep fjords and skyscrapers.
If you are in Fergus Falls this summer, you must stop in and see the exhibition, it is really great. I loved all the stories about how they left Norway in search of the American dream, but also the stories from second and third generation Norwegians. Brings out laughter and tears!
