By 1845, Norwegian immigrant Knudt Fossebrekke and his wife Gertrude were carving a farm out of the Rock County wilderness. The cabin represented a major accomplishment for Knudt Fossebrekke, who had immigrated with little more than his own abilities. He trapped and sold pelts to supplement farm income derived from growing wheat. The farm depicts the early years of Norwegian immigration to Wisconsin, when the first wave of immigrants began to flood into southern Wisconsin to take advantage of its fertile farmland.
