Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- The Otter Tail County Historical Society is opening a nation-wide traveling exhibit about this region's heritage.

The Western Norway Emigration center has brought to Fergus Falls a project called: "Between Coasts."

It documents a dozen people who have come to America from Norway. Some decades ago, others have lived here for just a few years.

Two Moorhead women are featured in the exhibit.

All have a connection to Norway's west coast.

Those interviewed talk about perceptions of America before the emigrated, and what life was like once they arrived.

There is an Open House for the Norway exhibit starting tomorrow night at the museum in Fergus Falls.
