Ringness House Museum

Details

     As one of the eight original Norwegian families who settled in Bosque County, Jens and Kari Ringness welcomed visitors, friends, and family to their large dobblehus. This 1859 house near Neils Creek was the site of the first Lutheran church service in Bosque County. In January, 1867, visiting pastor S.S. Reque arrived to baptise babies, officiate weddings, and hold church. After the service, Pastor Reque suggested that a church be built in the Norse community and that a pastor be called. His suggestion was approved by vote, and thus began the thriving church which anchors this area, Our Saviors Lutheran Church.

     The Ringness family and home is also known for the invention of the disk plow. Jens and Kari’s son, Ole, built the prototype in the blacksmith shop which still stands on the property, some distance from the Ringness house.

     With donations from The Norwegian Society of Texas, and from benefactors far and wide, the house has been restored from ruin. It is now open as a house museum, and visitors are happily welcome with some advance notice. Please be sure to take advantage of the Tour of Homes during the Norwegian Country Christmas which takes place the first Saturday in December. Tickets may be purchased through the Clifton Chamber of Commerce.
