Lindsborg, Kansas’ Swedish heritage dates back to 1869, when Pastor Olof Olsson led a group of Swedish immigrants from Värmland, Sweden, to the Smoky Valley. To honor its Scandinavian culture, Lindsborg launched a public artwork program spotlighting decorative ironwork, murals, folk paintings, wine vanes, tiles, and 31 Dala horse sculptures. Guests at the Swedish Country Inn can work up a sweat at its redwood sauna and enjoy a complementary European breakfast that includes pickled herrings, meatballs, rye bread, and lingonberry. Hemslöjd Dala Factory and Store occupies a former filling station and sells everything from licorice candy to custom Dala horse signs. And every other year, Lindsborg hosts the Svensk Hyllningsfest, celebrating its Swedish pioneers with music, dancing, arts and craft, and a Scandinavian feast.
