2015 Exhibition:
Danish Cedar Falls: The Immigrant Experience

February 5 - December 6, 2015

The first known Danish immigrants arrived in Cedar Falls in 1855, and by 1871, made up ten percent of the city’s population. Cedar Falls quickly became the second largest Danish community in Iowa, after Elk Horn.

Visit our 2015 exhibition and discover how Danes shaped our community through their traditions, businesses, churches, and civic organizations.
