About Us

Robert and Margaret Nordberg moved to Canton in 1987 with their four children. They had looked at various houses to create a Bed and Breakfast for several years and when 44 East Main Street became available this year, they decided to purchase it and renovate it after their Scandinavian heritage. Robert’s parents are Swedish and Margaret’s heritage is Norwegian.

In 1995 the Nordberg family went to Norway for Margaret’s family reunion. Over 70 people from Norway and 30 family members from the USA attended. One prominent family historian researched the family origins back to 1714 in Orkdal, Norway and found the original farm house, which is still in operation.
