The History of The Norland

A Historic Hidden Gem Preserved for Modern Day Events

A unique landmark, this Southern Colonial house reflects the origins of Charles Roland Daniel and his wife Maurine. Ordered from a lumberman’s catalogue the structure was shipped to this location, beginning assembly in 1909. As the centerpiece to a large farming operation, the house stood out on the vast 2000 acre treeless prairie landscape. With the introduction and expansion of irrigation, trees and crops were able to flourish leading to the current day hidden gem atmosphere surrounding the estate. Although no longer a functioning farm, the essence of the property has been retained, as has the name that Charles Roland Daniel affectionately gave to his farm: Norland. In an act of preservation, this estate has been transformed into an event venue allowing for the house and grounds to be maintained, while also allowing guests from near and far to appreciate the incomparable beauty that The Norland Historic Estate provides.

Wedding Bridal parties can enjoy access to five guest rooms on the second floor of the house as well as the living room and dining room on the main floor. Brides can relax and get ready and later, photos can be taken amongst the stunning, classic architecture.

The Ballroom

Year-round events are held in the 1900 sq. ft. Ballroom located on the west side of the mansion.
