O.E. Flaten & S.P. Wange

Pioneering Photographers

The early history of Clay County was captured by two pioneering photographers who immigrated from Norway in the late 1800s. Now preserved in the collection of the Heritage & Cultural Society of Clay County, the work of O.E. Flaten and S.P. Wange give us a window into the life and times of early settlement on the prairie.

About the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund

In 2008, Minnesota voters passed a landmark piece of legislation — the Minnesota Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment — which provided funding to public television stations serving audiences in Minnesota. Its mission is to help preserve and document the treasures of culture, history, and heritage that make Minnesota special, and to increase access to the natural and cultural resources we all share.
