The Swedes!

You knew it wouldn't end...our From Småland Sweden to Big Land Texas exhibit has been such an overwhelming success that we've extended the exhibition for another year. In addition, the traveling exhibit based on this popular topic has been at the Round Rock Public Library and is now at the Taylor Public Library until March. (Check back later to see where it's scheduled next.)

In addition to what we've got at the Museum, graduate students from Texas State University Jac and Jamie produced a website and a video about the Swedish migration in central Texas.
