The Norskedalen Nature & Heritage center was originally constructed as an outdoor laboratory and arboretum. The 112 acre farm was donated to the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Foundation in 1977. The property has grown over the years to encompass 443 acres on two separate sites. In addition to functioning as a wedding and event venue, it is also home to a museum and nature center that strive to keep the culture and heritage alive today. Since it was founded, its mission has been to preserve the natural environment and provide an in depth educational center.
There are a lot of things to look forward to if you choose to host your wedding at Norskedalen. The natural serenity of the area provides an exceptionally romantic and peaceful place to say your vows and celebrate with friends and family. There is an open air shelter that keeps you close to nature, but there is also a rustic amphitheater to host your event indoors if you choose. If you’d prefer a traditional church wedding, the Benrud Little White Chapel is the perfect setting. It was built in 1886 and moved to Norskedalen in 2009 to host wedding ceremonies and other meaningful events. No matter what section of Norskedalen you choose for your wedding, you’ll be treated to the ideal combination of rustic architecture and elegance.
