Mons Revheim (1862-1942), born and raised in a farming community on Osteroy, Norway, arrived at this location in the summer of 1881 with his two brothers, Ingebret and Baste. Finding good souls and thick stands of timber, Mons filed a homestead patent on a section of prime bottom land along the Missouri River. In 1882 he constructed a one room cabin of logs with a roof of sod and cottonwood branches. The cabin remained on this land until 1962 when it became inundated by Oahe Reservoir.
Erected by US Army Corp of Engineers.
