Where There’s Room to Grow

LIVING IN WHEATLAND COUNTY

Dalum

On the intersection of Hwy 56 and Hwy 569. Home to Dalum Hall, the Bethlehem Lutheran Church, and Dalum Rural Fire Association.

The Dalum area was first settled by ranchers. In 1916, Dansk Folkesamfund, a group started in 1887 by Danish-American immigrants, made contact with the Canadian Pacific Railway and began negotiations to obtain a tract of land for a Danish colony. Danish immigrants began settling the area in 1917, most arriving in the spring of 1918. Once the colony was in place, the Bethlehem Luthern Congregation was established. In September 1936, Dalum's most unique piece of architecture, the Bethlehem Lutheran Church of Dalum, was dedicated.
