Growth of Social Institutions
Over time social institutions were established in New Denmark. By 1878 a post office had been opened, a Sunday school was functioning, and a church was under construction. The first school built in the colony opened at Salmonhurst in 1880. School classes, however, were held in the old immigrant house from 1878 until 1896, when the building was deemed unfit for such use. A new school building was constructed on that site in 1897 and remained in use until 1957.
