On Dec. 1, 1–4 pm, the Ephraim Historical Foundation (EHF) will host a Holiday Open House at the historic Svalhus Library, 3060 Anderson Lane. With ornament decorating and heritage games, this event offers fun for the whole family.
The historic Norwegian building is decorated for the holidays, with EHF staff on hand to share the history of this unique building, as well as winter photographs and seasonal stories from the EHF Archives. Depending on the weather, the front lawn is available for lawn games or snow sculpting.
Svalhus roughly translates from Norwegian as “cooling house.” It was built around 1890 and today serves as a historical research library. It is open year-round to researchers and those interested in learning more about Ephraim’s history.
Although all Ephraim Historical Foundation programs are free, donations are greatly appreciated. For more information, contact EHF outreach director and curator Emily Irwin at [email protected] or 920.854.9688.
