Sons of Norway welcome Ohman

Churches of MinnesotaCMYKMinnesota Book Award winning author Doug Ohman will present “Just Down the Road: Historic Churches of Minnesota” at the upcoming Sons of Norway Scandia Lodge meeting, which will be held at the Waconia American Legion on Tuesday, Jan. 15 beginning at 6 p.m. with the social hour. The public is invited.
Ohman is a freelance photographer, writer and public speaker who has traveled throughout the Midwest photographing architecture. His work has been widely published in magazines, calendars and books. Over the past seven years, he has been working with the Minnesota Historical Society on a popular book series, “Minnesota Byways.”
Ohman will take you on a journey around Minnesota, exploring the history of many of the state’s oldest churches. Ohman will also tell his own story on how he took his passion for history and love of photography and combined them into a successful career.
Ohman’s other published work includes “Minnesota Treasures,” “Cabins of Minnesota,” “Libraries of Minnesota” and “Barns of Minnesota.”
