Mayville church celebrates 140th anniversary

Gran Lutheran was organized Sept. 1, 1873, in affiliation with the Norwegian Synod. The name comes from the Gran community in the Hadeland District of Norway, where many members had roots. In 1878 the parish established possibly the first boarding school in the Dakota Territory. The schoolroom is being restored in preparation for the anniversary.
