Valdres Crown

Solve A Mystery!

Can anyone help with the whereabouts of this crown?

This picture was from a 1957 program from the Valdres Samband. The last reference to this crown was in 1957 when it is believed that Yvonne Grove was crowned as “Kristine Valdresdatter”. Yvonne Grove is the daughter of Martin Grove and Granddaughter of Henry Grove is the last bit of information I have received. On the side of the picture you see the name Roma Jean Hovda; I have no reference to this name and would like any information anyone may have.

If anyone can give any tidbits of information about the crown or the names I have listed above, please contact our Preservation Committee Chairman – Russ Elmore at SkogTroll@centurytel.net or 715-766-2222 or P.O. Box 29, Springbrook, WI 54875
