Olof Swensson was one of Minnesota’s most innovative immigrants, and his 1880s family homestead epitomizes the immigrant's dream. Swensson was a farmer, self-taught scholar, man of letters, visionary prophet, statesman, carpenter, bricklayer and self-professed lay-minister. The farm site was bequeathed to the Chippewa County Historical Society in April, 1967 by the last surviving heir of the Swensson family, John Swensson.
