In 1854 a small group of Norwegian immigrants arrived in Bosque County along with Cleng Peerson, “The Father of Norwegian Immigration.” The land was free, and the Norwegians thought the beautiful land reminded them of their homeland. They settled northwest of Clifton in a large area today known as the Norse Historic District, where they farmed and built their homes of limestone. By 1900, the settlement had grown to include thousands of settlers and was the largest concentration of Norwegians living west of the Mississippi River. In 1997, Clifton was designated the “Norwegian Capital of Texas” by the state legislature. This unique heritage is kept alive today, in large part, through the annual Norwegian Country Christmas.
