New Land, New Life: Norwegian Immigration in Minnesota, 1825-1925
Alexandria, MN July-September, 2013 Hosted by the Runic Vennskap Lodge

As you can see, the exhibit comes to life in Alexandria in a new and unique way. Combined with the Douglas County Museum and the restored buildings from the early Norwegian pioneers, the setting and the panels come to life.
We thank Ron and Susan Stow for bringing the exhibit to this location, and for these pictures. (If the thumbnails are loading slowly, you can just click the description to go there.)

Ron Stow brings the panels past Big Ole, the Viking at Alexandria MN.

The 20 panels are delivered to Judy Burkey of Alexandria Sons of Norway Runic Vennskap lodge at the Douglas County Museum.
