MINOT, N.D. – A medallion commemorating Minot’s sister city of Skien, Norway, was reported stolen from the large ground map of Scandinavian countries, according to leadership with the Scandinavian Heritage Park in Minot.


The map, referred to as “Plaza Scandinavia,” lies at the entrance to the park, and features the five Nordic countries. The bronze inset medallion marking Skien is missing, leaving a hole in the map.

Minot and Skien began their sister city relationship in 1981, according to the park.

“Every year there has been a delegation that travels from Norway to Minot, North Dakota, in commemoration of commerce and culture, to celebrate that relationship. So for that particular medallion to be pried up and removed is like the heart of the association,” said Kev Davick, with the Scandinavian Heritage Association.

Anyone with information that could lead to the recovery of the medallion should contact Minot Police Det. Gregg Johnson at 701-852-0111.
