Surprisingly, since the townspeople still have Scandanavian ancestry and the town is a little quirky (though happily not too touristy), I thought I'd see plenty of Scandanavian brightly coloured houses...but I saw none in Dannevirke, and only this one here, which I immediately fell in love with.
I just think it's so cute.
Fondest memory: This bright wooden house is my favorite memory of Norsewood. It also had a red barn.
This small longboat seen here in its glass housing was presented by the Norwegian Government on the occasion of Norsewood’s centenary.
You can find it on the other side of the main street from the Info Centre, just down a little way.
Favorite thing: I also thought this cute little house (almost a hut!) directly across the road from the Norsewood shop was really interesting, in its garden setting.
Favorite thing: There's a little heritage museum in a brightly painted, Scandanavian like building in the main street, which could be a great spot to learn more about the area's multicultural history.
