The wood carvings are the result of Mr. Erik Fridstrom, one of Norway's best woodcarvers, and a local Rapid City resident, Mr. Helge Christiansen.
To serve as a visitor's center and offices for the Lutheran Vespers, an authentic grass-roofed "Stabbur," or store house, was built in Norway and shipped to Rapid City where it was assembled on site. Today it is used as the visitor's center and gift shop.
We are thankful for the opportunity to travel and see such special places as the Chapel in the Hills and to share our experiences with our family and friends. Our continuous prayer is that God will continue to bless our voyage, as well as our family and friends everywhere.
