The historic image inset in this photo was taken ca. 1902 and shows Anna (Eide) Anderson and her sister Ella (Eide) Berge (standing in the center) with some of their children, four granddaughters and other family members standing in front of the sandstone home 2 miles east of Vinland that was built in 1868 for Knud & Anna Anderson. Knud and Anna were Norwegian immigrants who settled on this farm in 1857. This 5-room home housed Knud & Anna and their five children and also the widowed Ella Berge and some of her children. My grandmother, Minnie Hoskinson Nichols, is the young girl seated on the ground on the far left.
