Welcome to the Norwegian-American Historical Association! Donate Now

Dedicated to locating, collecting, preserving, and interpreting the Norwegian-American experience with accuracy, integrity and liveliness.

NAHA was organized October 6, 1925, as a national center for the collection and preservation of historical material. Now in its 92nd year, the Association has published more than 100 books of scholarly merit and its archive is home to more than 1,700 collections. NAHA is located on the campus of St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota.

Join us for two memorable travel opportunities coming up in June 2020. Both are open to members of NAHA, as well as the general public.

Guided by NAHA editor Anna Peterson, we'll travel June 20-28 from Oslo to Bergen, via Telemark and Hardanger. See our flyer for more details.

The tour follows the triennial seminar of our sister organization, NAHA-Norge, June 17-20. Check out the seminar's call for papers for additional information.

To better serve our patrons, the archives are open by appointment only. Please call 507-786-3450 or email to plan your visit. Thank you!
