Norwegian American

Today we take a look at the town of Esdaile, Wisconsin.
This was the place where many Norwegian immigrants
decided to make their home in their new country.
In 1871 they founded the congregation of Eidsvold under
the leadership of Reverend Osten Hanson. Later on they
added a parochial school and began a rapid expansion.
In 1972 the congregation was still going strong and it
still retained much of its Norwegian flavor with still several
Hansons numbered among its members.
