Old Swedes Historic Site

Step back in time and get a glimpse at how the earliest European immigrants would have lived in America. Learn about life in New Sweden by exploring the historic Old Swedes Church, and experience how families lived in the Hendrickson House during the 17th and 18th centuries. Watch a craft demonstration, churn butter, or go on a scavenger hunt. Chart the history of immigration with a walking tour of the burial grounds - over 5,000 gravestones tell the story of those who came to the colony. The church has a replica of the labyrinth in Chartres for groups to walk.
