How can we know what's inside the walls of a historic building without scratching its surfaces? The historic 1916 Stavig House in Sisseton, SD is storied for its incorporation of both traditional ship building and innovative climate control technologies. What in these stories is fact and what is just stories built up across time? Is the house built around the latest climate control technology in 1916? Is this mansion on the plains built like a Norwegian boat? A team from South Dakota State University and the University of Manitoba are building a detailed analysis of this museum in Sisseton using LiDAR "point cloud" technology to peer into the walls of the house to look into these questions of history in place.
