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.

The Norwegian-American Historical Association was founded in 1925 as a national center for the collection and preservation of historical material. Located on the campus of St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, the Association has published more than 100 books of scholarly merit and its archive is home to more than 2,200 collections.


In response to public health recommendations, the NAHA Archives are closed to the public through April 17. For questions regarding research or donation of archival material, contact or call 507-786-3450. For all other questions, contact or call 507-786-3221.

Our Spring Member Meetup, scheduled for April 30, is cancelled. We hope to see you at our Biennial Member Meeting on Oct. 24, 2020.

Our Artistry and Industry of Norway tour is also cancelled for 2020. If conditions permit, we hope to offer a similar experience in June of 2021. Note that the NAHA-Norge triennial seminar is also postponed until June 2021.
