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‘.

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.
