Biography/History"The Hallson Church was built in 1897. The land was donated by Johann Hallson, along with the church bell, pastor's chair, altar and financial help. In 1899, the Icelanic Lutheran convention was held at Hallson and the church was dedicated at this time. Johann Hallson died shortly before this great day arrived, and he was buried the same day as the dedication of his church. This church, with its beautiful stained glass windows, after 70 years still stands on the north side of Highway No. 5, 10 miles west of Cavalier in Pembina county."
Icelandic State Park is 4 miles west of Cavalier on Highway 5. This part of North Dakota was settled by Icelandic settlers in the late 1800's. Located on the north shore of Lake Renwick, Icelandic offers many pleasures for park visitors. In 1954, G.B. Gunlogson and his sister, Loa, donated a 200-acre tract to the park for the purpose of establishing a sanctuary for birds, plants and animals. The original Gunlogson homestead is now a museum and plans are under way to establish a pioneer heritage center, by moving and restoring four historic buildings on the site.
