Ephraim’s History Speaks Wraps Up

The last program in the Ephraim Historical Foundation’s History Speaks lecture series will be held Tuesday, July 28 at 7:30 pm in the Ephraim Village Hall. Dr. Richard Nielsen will be on hand to discuss the Kensington Rune Stone. The stone’s writings on its face suggest that Scandinavians may have landed in North America in the year 1362, much sooner than Christopher Columbus discovered the New World. Door County resident Hjalmar Holand believed (unlike many other runeologists) that the stone was not a forgery, and Nielsen’s extensive research backs up that claim.
