The Oldest Sons of Norway Lodge in Alaska

We take great pleasure in sharing and promoting our Norwegian heritage.

Our unique building dates back to 1912 when 60 charter members borrowed money and sold $5.00 shares and then constructed our building in a style similar to the early barns in the mid-west. Our beloved building is a community treasure and in 1984 it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Throughout the years, our lodge has been the heart of the community with many wedding receptions, parties, dances, lodge socials, potlucks, tour dinners and tour coffees. In the early days even the high school basketball games were played in our hall. The hoop is still there!

Notes from the Board

Thanks to a high vaccination rate in town, things are crawling back to normal! The dancers are once again performing for visitors, bingo is happening upstairs again on Friday nights, and spring has finally sprung!

The Bojer Wikan Fishermen’s Memorial Park is adjacent to our Hall and was dedicated in 2000. Our Viking ship, the Vallhalla, resides there along with beautiful flower boxes, benches, memorial plaques and a bronze statue of Bojer Wikan, a long-time fisherman who promoted the idea of the park.
