immigrant for a day
Come experience a FREE day as an immigrant making a new life on a small farm in the town of Scandia in the late-1800’s.
From 1-4 pm, Gammelgården opens for free each of the five historic
and fully-furnished buildings allowing visitors to participate in the work and play as residents of this small farm did in the late-1800’s.
You may be hauling water, packing your trunk for America, making butter, doing laundry, and playing games at “recess” in the new schoolyard. Come dressed in a period costume to add to your experience.
