Landmarks and History - District 6 Schoolhouse

New Sweden Township, MN

Located on Minnesota Highway 22 west of St. Peter, you will find this quaint one-room country schoolhouse that is still standing. It served the New Sweden Township District 6, which was founded in 1863. This schoolhouse was the third school building of the district, built in 1929. The school was closed in 1958 and the district dissolved in 1962. This building is now the New Sweden Town Hall.
