In 2017, Norway House was honored with a gift of $5 million in matching grants to expand the campus around the whole block. As the new cultural center for Norwegian-America, the expansion will include event space and a genealogy library. It is estimated that over 850,000 Minnesotans claim Norwegian ancestry.
Bygdelagenes Fellesraad and Norway House are excited to be partnering in the upcoming expansion of the current Norway House campus. The expansion will include a research library, space, and classes needed to introduce genealogy to a new generation of researchers.
