Stave Church - Moorhead, MN

Stave Church - Moorhead, MN
The original Hopperstad Stavkirche was built in 1130 AD in Vik, Norway. This replica was constructed on the site of the Heritage Hjemkomst Interpretive Center in Moorhead. The Viking builders developed refined construction techniques using wood columns and planks (staves) along with ornate carvings to fashion inspiring places of worship for converts to the newly introduced Christian religion.
