Sunburg Minnesota Community Guide


Location:
Sunburg Minnesota population sign Location of Sunburg, Minnesota

Just inside the northwest corner of the county where County Road 104 and Highway 9 intersect and the prairie hills deposited by the last glacier begin, you’ll find the village of Sunburg. With a population of 100, the community still makes a big impact. They’ve even become famous for Syttende Mai, an annual celebration honoring their Norwegian heritage. The Kultur Hus promotes the Nordic heritage by teaching folk arts, music, language, needlework and dancing. Do a little shopping while at the Kultur Hus and find some unique imports from Norway.

The community is home to Hope Lutheran Church and Sunburg Community Bible Church. There are also several smaller Lutheran congregations within a few miles of the city. Despite its small size, Sunburg offers several businesses, including Skindelien Hardware, a gas station, N & J’s grocery store, Lake Region Bank and Dan’s Diesel Service & Repair. Another great community asset is the town’s baseball team, the Norway Lake-Sunburg Lakers. Games are typically played on Sundays at various locations, but home games for the Lakers are played at the ball park in town.

History:  

SUNBURG, a city in Norway Lake Township, section 30, incorporated as a village September 8, 1951; the post office was established in 1871 as Sunburgh, changing to the present form in 1894; both versions of the name were suggested by John Sandvigen, a rural mail carrier, the first for a locality in Norway, the second for a strait between two lakes near postmaster Ole Eliason's home, sund meaning "strait" in Norwegian.
