The Village of Ephraim’s cultural and historical heritage is a blend of Moravian culture and Norwegian ethnic heritage. Founded as a Moravian religious community in 1853 by the Reverend Andreas Iverson, many of the historic buildings – The Moravian Church (1858), the Pioneer Schoolhouse (1880), the Anderson Store (1858) and warehouse, as well as the Anderson Barn (1880) and eight homes in the Village – are more than a century old and all still in use. The city’s main festival is Fyr Bal, a Scandinavian festival held in mid-June to burn away the witches of winter. Bonfires burn along the shoreline as residents and visitors gather to celebrate the beginning of summer.
