Welcome to the Nya Duvemala Home

The Karl Oskar House will reopen for the 2024 season on Sunday May 19th. 

We will be open each Sunday during the summer months (mid May through Sept 22 from 1:00-4:00pm).  Check the website or facebook page for special music and events. All are welcome to come and learn about the Karl Oskar and early immigrants story.

The Organization

The Lindström Historical Society was chartered in November of 1994. In 2021, an agreement was made with the Chisago County Historical Society to be under their organizational umbrella. The organization’s name was then changed to ‘Friends of the Karl Oskar House‘. In 2024 we became our own 501C3 organization again.

The Mission

To preserve, share, and celebrate Swedish immigration and culture.

The Vision

To sustain the historical Karl Oskar House for education about Swedish immigration to the Chisago Lakes region of Minnesota and to celebrate the connection of Nya Duvemåla with Vilhelm Moberg’s contributions to the Swedish immigration story.
