In 1927 my Great Uncle, Isak Dahle, purchased an abandoned farm that had been settled by Norwegian Immigrants in the mid 1800s. Over the years he renovated the original farm buildings, filled them with antiques from Norway and America and eventually opened what has since been known as Little Norway. For seventy five years, four generations of my family have had the good fortune to share this charming valley with travelers from around the world.
And now, as times have changed, so too changes Little Norway. My mother said to me “Werent we fortunate all these years to have Little Norway in our lives? When you close that gate for the last time, you do so knowing that three generations have their hands on yours.”
The gate is now closed and we are grateful for the years weve had, the wonderful employees that worked along side us and the appreciative visitors that, over the years, have made it all possible.
