    We too have a Swedish settlement in our village, but not so highly publicized. Looks like a nice sleepy little town. Your tour must have been such fun.

    Allan would love this town. Being Swedish, he would enjoy all Lindstrom has to offer. We have a coffee pot that looks similar to the featured tower. Another incredibly delightful page...always something new and unique, Stephen.
