Explore Lindsborg, Kansas A Touch of Sweden in the Middle of America

In 1869, settlers from the Swedish province of Dalarna founded Lindsborg; with a current population of 3,286, it’s a small town big on small-town American charm.

While Lindsborg celebrates its Swedish heritage through festivals, food, and folk art, its middle America also sparkles.

You’ll find Lindsborg, Kansas, known as Little Sweden, USA, at the intersection of Sweden and the United States.

If you’re taking the all-American road trip along the Prairie Trail Scenic Byway, which spans 80 miles of north-central Kansas, Lindsborg sits about mid-way along the route.
