Fundraiser Launched to Preserve replica Gol Stave Church in Minot

Please join with us in making a difference! We’re raising money to benefit the Scandinavian Heritage Association Inc, a non-profit organization, to help pay for costs incurred to prep, stain and preserve the exterior surfaces and roof of the majestic Gol Stave Church, Gate House, Nordic Pavilion roof and picnic shelters. All are in need of preservative stains and sealers to maintain good condition!

Help us reach our goal of $15,000!

The iconic Stave church is a full-size replica of the Gol-Stave Church, which was moved from Gol, Hallingdal to the Folk Museum in Oslo, Norway about 100 years ago. This church has a special place of honor in the Heritage Park. The church was dedicated October 10, 2000. It is a unique and beautiful structure, readily recognized here in North Dakota and abroad and is only one of seven in the United States. It continues to be a desirable background for special photo sessions and unique advertising campaigns. The Gol Stave Church is held in high esteem as a tribute to our pioneer immigrants, and solidly stands as an inspirational vision of hope for generations to come.

The Scandinavian Heritage Park features not only the Gol Stave Church, but is also home to the oldest house in North Dakota, the Sigdal House, built in Norway about 1771, a Stabbur (a storehouse), Nordic Pavilion (a gathering space), 30 foot tall Dala Horse, authentic Finnish Sauna, Danish Windmill, Plaza Scandinavia, Heritage House a collection of artifacts, a beautiful waterfall, ponds, Scandinavian flag display, seasonal flower gardens, sculptures such as the famous Icelandic Explorer, Leif Erikson, monuments, picnic shelters, paved pathways and many inspirational settings for all to enjoy and is even a pet friendly location to take a stroll.

Whatever the season, the Scandinavian Heritage Park is a welcome setting, for all to experience and enjoy!

Your contribution is sincerely appreciated, every dollar raised will help make it possible for SHA to keep the buildings and features in this wonderful setting in good repair for all to enjoy!
