Swedish Room

Swedish immigrants began to arrive in Jamestown in the mid-1800s.  They were one of many immigrant populations that have made Jamestown what it is today.  While Jamestown’s founding family, the Prendergast’s, were Irish, the English, Swedish, Italian, Greek and Albanian cultures have all had a strong impact on building Jamestown.  This exhibit was designed and installed by local Swedish descendants and represents the homeland left behind by the Swedish settlers
