Enger Log Cabin 

The log house is the newest addition to the museum’s facilities. Initially built by Norwegian immigrants Fingaland Gjertrud Enger, of Enger township, the 1870’s home, which was literally falling down on its original site, has been carefully reconstructed at the museum and is being used to interpret the early Scandinavian immigrant experience. Fingal Enger was the first white settler, arriving in 1872, in the area that became Steele County in 1883. Pictured below are the descendants of Fingal Enger.
