This is a vibrant museum and culture center in the Philips West neighborhood of the city. This is listed in the National Register of Historic Landmarks. It is the best place if you want to get knowledge about the Americans of Swedish Heritage.
Swan Turnblad immigrated to the US in the 19th century when he was 8 years old and did not join his family farming tradition. Instead his interest in the paper and printing industry led him to start a weekly newspaper that received immense support from Swedish as well as the Americans. Later, he married Christina Nillson and planned the princely estate like we see it today.
The paper became his real source of income and he wrote his own rags to rich story that still interests people who visits this institute.
