Charming small towns populate Minnesota, but the breathtaking beauty of the Southeastern region adds to the quaintness of our little town of Peterson. We think Norwegians settled Peterson as a reminder of the mountains, forests, wildlife, and snow they left behind. Christmas found them cooking, baking and crafting lovely homemade presents while making sure the Nisse were happy. They knew the Nisse would play tricks all year if ignored. We continue their traditions!
