What's Happening

Victorian Home in Scandinavia
Saturday, October 28, 2017 - 10:00am to 5:00pm
Sunday, October 29, 2017 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

During a period of five years (1850-1855) large numbers of Norwegian immigrants registered and received land parcels to clear land for farming and build their homes.  These lands were to become known as the village of Scandinavia, Wisconsin on the South Branch of the Little Wolf River.  Imagine what it must have looked like in the 1850s, when there was only wilderness between Winchester and Scandinavia, Wisconsin.

Four of those 1850s land patent certificates along with family portraits are on display in the restored Victorian home of Jon and Linda Durrant in Scandinavia, WI.   Their home was built in 1893 by Norwegian immigrant John Olsen Wrolstad, a U.S. Civil War Veteran and owner a successful logging business and flour mill.  Second owners were Thomas and Maren Quien family who owned the house for 90 years.   

Third owners Jon and Linda Durrant invite you to tour their Victorian Wrolstad-Quien home at 255 Mill Street in Scandinavia, WI on Saturday and Sunday October 28 & 29 from 10:00a until 5:00p.  You'll enjoy the onsite craft show and the chili and dessert lunch served by the Scandinavia Public Library supporters.  Your $2 donation at the door benefits the Humane Society of Waupaca County and is the reason the Durrants host this event each year near the Halloween Weekend.

During the house tour you will see a full range of Queen Anne architecture.  Wrap around front porch, turned columns, bay windows, cutaways, corbels, and short spindles that look like spinning tops.  The house's faux bois woodwork was not only fashionable at the time, but considered lavish to have artisans paint woodwork to look like quarter sawn oak, walnut, and mahogany.  Windows and doors are decorated with Eastlake spoon carved flower blocks, fluted rails and stiles.  You'll see original pocket doors, fancy wood spandrels, etched glass doors featuring herons, and a stairway stained glass window filtering colorful lights on the foyer floor.

The Scandinavia Public Library invites all crafters to Crafting Bee. This informal group is designed for hand crafters of all types to work in an atmosphere of creativity and mutual support. Assistance is available for a wide variety of crafts as well. So whether you knit, crochet, cross stitch, quilt, bead, or scrap, and whether you're a novice or an experienced pro, these sessions are open to everyone! All ages are welcome, although younger children should be supervised. Please come and enjoy the fun!

Crafting Bee takes place from 10:00 a.m. ─ Noon every Thursday.

You can check out some of our projects on the Scandinavia Public Library's Facebook page!
