To revive the
town's Nordic heritage, a few Ephraimites started a Scandinavian Festival
in 1976. Held on the weekend before Memorial Day, the festival now features
numerous events centered on Ephraim Square. Ephraim almost razed its
empty Co-op after tearing down the old rock tabernacle, but it recently
decided to restore its finest building and make it once again a central
focus of Main Street and the entire town.
