The Swedish Immigrant Trail
The Swedish Immigrant Trail has existed in some form for more than 150 years. From 1880 to 1948 it connected Wyoming, Minnesota to Taylor's Falls on the St. Croix River via rail. This video promotes re-establishing this route as a multi use recreational trail.

10:00 am Museum Buildings and Exhibits, Art Fair & Food Booth Open
10:30 am Children’s activities until program begins
12:30 pm Scandia Community Band
01:00 pm Musicians Parade & Program
Gammelgården means Old Farm in Swedish. Visitors can step back in history and experience the lives of early Swedish immigrants in the only open air museum devoted to Swedish immigration in the United States.
Visit the many buildings on Gammelgården Museum's 11 acres site. Your tour guide will give a lots of information about the Välkommen Hus, Präst Hus, Gammel Kyrkan, Ladugård, Immigrant Hus and Swedish Stuga. Visitors can get a glimpse of the daily lives of these immigrants and participate in events and classes to learn more about the culture and times of the immigrants.
As evidenced by the town's name, Scandia has a rich Scandinavian heritage. Scandia was the site of what is believed to have been the first Swedish immigrant settlement in the State of Minnesota. In 1850, the first log cabin was built on the shores of Hay Lake. The first sanctuary of Elim Lutheran Church was built in 1856 on a site near Hay Lake.
Gammelgarden Museum is owned by Elim Lutheran Church and since 1972 has preserved, presented, and promoted Swedish immigrant heritage and history, with events such as Spelmansstämma, Midsommarafton, and Dalapalooza. The latter is a reference to the Dalecarlian horses the city has erected to welcome visitors, in much the same way Saint Paul, Minnesota uses Peanuts characters.
The Gammelgarden Museum has a main building with Swedish art, furniture, etc., which was free to browse. I think some of the displays change from time to time. There was a special display of Swedish copper works. Also, in the main building is a gift shop with lots of Swedish items and foods at reasonable prices. The main attraction is the collection of farm buildings, a church and a house for a preacher. You can walk around and look in the windows, but don't expect to see much. We went back the next day to get the tour and it was well worth the cost. The tour guide knew his stuff. He made it fun and interesting and was able to answer all of our questions. This was my favorite place to visit in the Chisago Lakes area.
We love visiting the Gammelgarden on days when there are people dressed up and giving tours. It is a very fun and educational living history museum. Great for all ages.
