Stave Church will be closed through MarchMOORHEAD – The Hopperstad Stave Church at the Hjemkomst Center here is closed to the public through March because of the weather.
Regular guided tours of the church interior will resume April 1, weather permitting.
It is in the best interest of preserving the church to have it closed through March each year. Snow, ground frost and extreme temperature changes affect the wooden doors, making them difficult to open and secure.
The Hjemkomst Center will continue to provide information about the church through videos and docent talks.
