5 Hopperstad Stave Church in Moorhead, Minnesota

In 1130, the Hopperstad Stave Church was built in Vikøyri, Norway. It is still standing. This style of a wooden structure with post and lintel construction and a steep sloping roofline was popular in northern Europe during the Middle Ages. This replica plus a Viking ship are a few of the educational exhibits at the Hjemkomst Center in Moorhead. The museum’s mission is to tell the story of one-third of the state’s population with Nordic heritage. Moorhead has about 42,000 residents. The city is located in northwest Minnesota across the Red River from Fargo, North Dakota.
