Hallingdal is a rugged mountain valley in Norway, between Oslo and Bergen. Many people migrated from this valley to the United States and Canada, especially during the 1800's.
The Hallinglag is an organization formed in 1907, by these immigrants and their descendants. In 1910, the Hallinglag began collecting money for their contribution towards the celebration of Norway's Constitutional Centennial in 1914. The funds were collected for the purpose of erecting and engraving monuments to the veterans of the independence struggle. A monument was placed in each community in Hallingdal.
