Axel & Dagmar Mortenson
Axel was a native of Norway and arrived in the United States in 1911. He listed his employment in 1930 as a “trailer assembler,” likely at the Mandt Wagon Company which at the time was making a variety of automotive products. Later, after the end of Prohibition in 1933, he operated Mortenson’s Tavern on Main Street.
With its gambrel roof and side-lit entry, the Mortenson house is a good example of the Dutch Colonial style.
