History:  

HANSKA, a city in the east edge of Lake Hanska Township, section 24, bears as its name, like the township, the common Dakota word meaning "long" or "tall," which these Indians gave to the remarkably long and narrow lake in this township and Albin. The village was platted October 9, 1899, and was incorporated on May 1, 1901; its post office began in 1890. The village had a creamery, three grain elevators, a roller mill, and a station on the Minneapolis and St. Louis Railroad.

Norwegian Stabbur
City Park
Hanska Minnesota

Hanska's Stabbur is located in the south end of the city park. This structure is a replica of many such stabburs found in Norway. Stabburs were used to store grain and dried foods. To discourage rodents from entering the building, the stabburs were set on narrow piles of rocks or inverse cones of wood at each of its four corners. If the stabbur had a loft, it often housed hired help and could be used as a sleeping space for guests. Many of these structures still function in Norway today and used for all manner of things,
