PHOTOS: Christmas at the Louis Larson Home
Jillianne Kleine, 14, of New London plays a game Saturday at the Louis Larson Home in New London. She and others dressed in period costumes during an open house. “I feel ridiculous,” Kleine said of her hoop skirt. Larson, the father of New London, built the house in 1902.
Sharon Nelson, owner of the Louis Larson Home, explains the history of the house to Betty Hagen of Brooten during an open house Saturday. Nelson has owned the house 36 years, and this was the first open house she has held. The event was a fundraiser for New London Ambulance and First Responders.
“It’s a privilege to take care of the house and the property in their honor,” she said of Louis and Karin Larson.
