Come experience a day as an immigrant making a new life on a small farm in the town of Scandia in the late 1800's. Visit each of the 5 historic and fully furnished buildings to participate in the work and play of residents of this small farm. You may be hauling water, packing your trunk for America, making butter, doing laundry and playing games at "recess" in the new school yard. Come dressed in period costume to add to your experience. You are invited to begin your day early in our first worship service of the summer season in the GammelKyrkan (old church) at 8:00 to 8:30. Activities in and around the historic buildings begin at 1:00 p.m. and last until 4:00. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy our picnic grounds. (There are many areas to discover around Scandia so come for the day!)
