DECORAH, Iowa — Vesterheim, the national Norwegian-American museum and heritage center, is grateful to have community partners like Mississippi Welding who are willing to support our Folk Art school classes. Their support serves, not only our community members, but also participants from across the nation enabling many to find their own way to create at Vesterheim! Mississippi Welding provided assistance accessing welding equipment.
