Lindsborg’s Sesquicentennial Recognized in the Halls of Congress (no, really!)

The Kansas community affectionately known as “Little Sweden” is getting some big recognition. Senators Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts introduced a resolution in the United State Senate celebrating Lindsborg, Kansas on the 150th anniversary of its establishment, commending the people who have made Lindsborg the own full of rich culture it is today and honoring the immigrants of the Varmland province of Sweden for settling in Lindsborg. Lindsborg was established on February 20, 1869.

Representative Roger Marshall of the state’s first Congressional district introduced a companion resolution in the House of Representatives.

“Lindsborg is a town full of rich history, whose residents today still embody the perseverance of its settlers who first made Lindsborg home 150 years ago,” said Senator Moran. “I am always struck by the kindness of Lindsborg residents, and every time I visit, I leave thinking, ‘I could live here.’ I am pleased to help celebrate this exciting milestone in the town’s history and we look forward to what’s still to come.”

“Lindsborg is a true cultural gem on the Kansas prairie,” said Senator Roberts. “Over the last 150 years, the town has both persevered and prospered keeping true to its deep Swedish roots. These traditions will help the town continue to be a wonderful place to call home.”

“It’s my honor to sponsor this resolution that celebrates the 150th Anniversary of a very special town to my family, Lindsborg, Kansas,” said Representative Marshall. “Lindsborg is a bright, vibrant community that honors its past while embracing its future. Growing up in a family with Swedish roots, we still celebrate Swedish traditions today. In fact, every Christmas dinner we have various Swedish dishes, bought from Lindsborg, including pickled herring, anchovies, hardtack crackers and Swedish candies. I greatly value my heritage which is why I am proud to sponsor a resolution supporting Lindsborg, ‘Little Sweden, USA.'”
