Norwegian Grove Today (Well, 21st Century). Special thanks to Klovstad's and Tollerud's, keepers of the farms established by Haugtvedts a century ago. Find here photographs of Norwegian Grove area west of Pelican Rapids, Tollerud Farm, Klovstad farm, Leroy and Betty Klovstad, and cemetary photo libraries for East North Immanuel and West North Immanuel. It is beautiful country, as good as it gets anywhere.

Peter and Nellie Klovstad House. Jim Gordon says, "My mother always raved about this house. One of the first with indoor plumbing, electric lights and all the luxuries." (Jim's mother was born Myrtle Caroline Jensen, daughter of Hjalmar Jensen, son of Jens Larson Haugtvedt).
