According to documents obtained by The Associated Press., more than $580,000 is needed in repairs to the boyhood home of Lawrence Welk in the south-central North Dakota town of Strasburg. On Friday, Oct. 4, 2013, Evelyn Schwab, Welk’s niece who owns the famous bandleader and TV host’s birthplace along with her sister, Edna, said the assessment done by the North Dakota Historical Society threatens the sale of the property to the state.
