A post office was established at Little Norway in 1961. The building was damaged by fire in 1967. Two other fires broke out, a 1988 arson and a 1991 fire which caused $200,000 in damage to the Little Norway resort.
Little Norway is situated on US Route 50 and was a Greyhound stop for cross country skiers.
A specimen of bullthistle or bull thistle (Cirsium vulgare), an invasive species native throughout most of Europe (north to 66°N, locally 68°N), Western Asia (east to the Yenisei Valley), and northwestern Africa, was collected near here in or before 1984.
