The City of Lindsborg was settled in the spring of 1869 by a group of Swedish immigrants from the Värmland province of Sweden led by Pastor Olof Olsson. They envisioned a community rich in culture, learning, religion, business and farming. These values remain strong today as evidenced by a city that is rich in the performing and visual arts; home to Smoky Valley School District and Bethany College; Baptist, Catholic, Covenant, Lutheran and Methodist churches thrive; a place where retail, industry and business thrives; and agricultural continues to play an important role in the community. The downtown features gift shops that specialize in Swedish souvenirs, including various sizes of dala horses. Today, thirty percent of the population is of Swedish heritage.
