Swedish Pioneers Settle the American Midwest
Beginning in the late 1830s, waves of Norwegians, Swedish, and Finnish began traveling to America in search of new opportunities as their homelands were growing in population. Some of these earliest immigrants began settling in southeastern Wisconsin. As more people settled, more of their families began to follow, settling in southwest Wisconsin, southeast Minnesota, and North Dakota.
