Symbol of Our Heritage
The Erik Lindgren Home stands as a monument to the skilled log home builders who constructed it and the dedicated Society volunteers who helped save it. The 1922 cedar home and its outlying buildings house an array of artifacts of western frontier some unique to Finnish pioneers. The Lindgren Home is honored as America's foremost example of a hand-hewn cabin. Society hosts and hostesses open its doors to visitors weekends and holidays each summer as handcrafted demonstrations and warm Finnish hospitality bring the spirit of the past alive.
