Nielsen's Grove Museum


Image 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.

About Orem City

The City of Orem was organized in 1919 and named after Walter C. Orem, President of the Salt Lake and Utah Railroad. Orem is now the commercial and technological center for Central Utah and is one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the United States. Housing, educational, and employment opportunities continue to be in high demand as Orem's population passes 91,000 residents.

The City of Orem is located on the eastern shore of Utah Lake and extends on the east to Provo and the foothills of Mount Timpanogos. It shares the general location with Provo, and its history is closely related to that of Provo. Its recent explosive development and growth have resulted in Orem becoming the fifth-largest city in Utah according to the 2010 US Census.
