Maihaugen Again

In my last post on Heritage Square History park I mentioned Maihaugen, in Lillehammar, Noway. Here is a photo from the farm I mentioned, the one where the actors live full time for three months, farming as if it were 1850's Norway.

Somewhere in my files I think I have scans from an early 20th century book showing how things looked a Skansen every summer. Artur Hazelius brought folks from the villages and farms to live in the park. It was a way of showing the city dwellers the spirit of folk culture. I know I scanned the pictures, I just have to find them.
