Lawrence Welk Birthplace
The iconic musician who delighted generations with his musical style (known frequently as “champagne music”) and his Lawrence Walk Show from 1955 to 1982 was born in 1903 on a farm in Strasburg, North Dakota, about 75 miles southeast of Bismarck.
His homestead is open to the public and was just sold by Welk’s relatives to the North Dakota Historical Society in 2014. Currently on display, you will see Lawrence Welk’s original accordion along with a bandstand and other accoutrements. From Bismarck, follow I-94 east to U.S. 83 southbound (exit 182) and Strasburg is a little over 50 miles down.
