The Farmhouse at Thrunegaarden is an idyllic setting on 40 acres of Wisconsin Farmland. Sit in the living room watching deer munch on the grass in front of the window. Enjoy the historic buildings gracing the property, telling the story of the Norwegian immigrants. Learn the history of the area as you walk the path from building to building, wandering between century old pine trees. Most of all, escape from the hectic pace of daily life while visiting The Farmhouse at Thrunegaarden!

The space
The Farmhouse at Norskedalen's Thrunegaarden is part of Norskedalen Nature & Heritage Center. Norskedalen is Norwegian for Norwegian Valley; Thrunegaarden is Norwegian for Thrune Farm. Thrunegaarden is the home of the Niels Skumsrud Cabin, the oldest cabin in Vernon County, Wisconsin. Signage on the property depicts the friendly relationship between the Native Americans present in this area and the Skumsrud Family. You'll also learn of Skumsrud descendants Lloyd and Agnes Thrune, and Ruth Thrune and their gift to Norskedalen.

Norskedalen has been built by volunteers over the past 40 years who believe that remembering their heritage is the best way to pave the road to the future. Since Norskedalen is not about me, but about those who built it and those who will keep it growing, what I share with you here is reflective of Norskedalen and it's members. Buildings were moved to Norskedalen from a variety of surrounding farms. Each of the buildings were lived in and/or used within 10 miles of where they now stand. The Homestead is built in traditional Norwegian style of a 'tun', or U shape. A tobacco barn resides at the top of the hill behind the homestead, reflecting the significance of the tobacco farms in this area. All of this work was done by volunteers on weekends and evenings, with no paid staff, no budget, no funding. Just the belief that preserving the history of this area is important for the future. Tremendous friendships have been built during the building of Norskedalen! The Paulson Cabin was built in the 1840's. The kitchen and basement were added to make it modern, but otherwise what you see in the living room and upper level is what the Paulson family lived in. Your rental of the Paulson cabin includes access to Norskedalen grounds; stop in the Visitors' Center for information on events, hiking trails, museums and gifts shops.
