In cooperation with the Ottesen Museum, the ELS Historical Society sponsors a variety of educational programs.

Throughout the year, the museum offers:

  • Life in a Log Cabin (Norwegian or "Yankee")
  • Teaching Synod History in the Parish
  • Preserving and Protecting Parish History
  • From Norwegian Upper Class to Prairie Parsonage: The Lives of Elisabeth Koren and Linka Preus

In conjunction with the annual synod convention each June, the Society also offers special programs, such as:

  • The Latch String Always Hangs Out: Music and Story Telling from a Pioneer Log Cabin (featuring live performances of Norwegian and American folk music and stories about life during the pioneer period)

These educational events are child-friendly and available free of charge. For more information, contact the Ottesen Museum.
