America's Little Sweden
in 1894, Lindstrom was first settled by Daniel Lindstrom
who left Sweden for America in 1853. Among the Swedish
Emigrants was Erik Norelius, whose personal journals
(documented in part) formed the basis of Vilhelm Moberg’s
novels of the Swedish Emigration to America. Moberg’s
fictional heroes, Karl-Oskar and Kristina Nilsson, are
memorialized in statue at the west end of town as a
tribute to the early Swedish immigrants whose
descendents continue to populate our area.
