Nielsen's Grove (Sandhill Road 2000 South) is a unique site that celebrates the life work of Jorgen Nielsen, a Danish immigrant who sought to create an elaborate garden and recreation space for the local citizens. To commemorate this wonderful history, Orem City and the Orem Historical Preservation Committee have established the Nielsen's Grove Museum. The museum is housed in a replica of the original Jorgen Nielsen family home. There are three main rooms which contain historical artifacts and images that represent the Nielsen family. In addition, the museum details Kongens Have, the Danish gardens that inspired Jorgen Nielsen. The museum is self-guided and offers an opportunity to learn the rich history of the area.
