Feel Like You’re Overseas When You Visit The The Hopperstad Church, A Replica Of A Norwegian Church In Minnesota
Here in Minnesota, many people are proud of their Scandinavian heritage. There are Nordic gift stores, Norwegian bakeries, and entire Swedish towns. Those are a few of the places that celebrate Scandinavian culture, but there are many more to discover. For example, in Moorhead, Minnesota, there’s a full-size church that stands as a replica to a real-life, historic church in Norway. When you visit the Hopperstad Church, it’s like going overseas. This eye-catching structure is a must-visit for Minnesotans curious about the state’s historic ties to Norway.
