Mendota After Hours: Swedish Immigrants in Minnesota 


Join the Dakota County Historical Society and the Sibley Historic Site for July's Mendota After Hours!

Minnesota welcomed more Swedish immigrants than any other state. Come learn about the major waves of Swedish immigration and hear stories of one of Minnesota's most prominent 20th century Swedish families. Explore artifacts that helped these families make Minnesota home and consider how stories of migration continue today.

The American Swedish Institute will present this intriguing story of Swedish immigration in Minnesota. The event is in-person and is for registered guests. At this time, there is no virtual option, but we are seeking arrangements to allow for a hybrid model.
