Join the Illinois State Historical Society and the nation of Norway at the unveiling of a new ISHS historical marker to commemorate the "Norway Building," at noon on Saturday, August 25, at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. The Norway Building, modeled after the Norwegian stave churches of the middle ages, is one of the few buildings from the 1893 Columbian Exhibition in original condition and the only one to return to its country of origin. The historical marker commemorates the location of the Norway Building at the Exhibition, and chronicles its history in the US and Norway.
