A small red quaint house, the Svenska Stuga (or Swedish home) is a replica of a house built in Minnesota by a Swedish immigrant who wanted a house which reminded him of his house in his homeland. The Stuga is a one-room house, typical of what peasants called their home in Sweden. It was common to be occupied by a large family, and possibly three generations lived there year-round.
The Stuga has a beautiful fireplace built with field rock of the area. The ceiling beams are notched and painted with colorful, scenic drawings of Sweden. Many Swedish items, such as furniture and trunks, are used to furnish and decorate this house.
Volunteer hostesses yearly clean and decorate the Svenska Stuga in preparation for the threshing show. Some visitors share interesting stories of their experiences as they’ve visited the “Old Country”, and hostesses tell the visitors about the traditions, which the Swedes still cherish.
