In 1889 a Norwegian named Henry Kjelstad settled in Ohop Valley. He married another Norwegian, Olava and this is a picture of their farm years later.
The farm moved through the generations:
• Olava and Henry’s son Matt and he and his wife Velma lived at the farm,
• They were followed by Matt and Velma’s daugther Caroline and her husband Steve Burwash. Steve still lives at the homestead today and farms.
