Below is some general information about Lindstrom:

Lindstrom is a city in Chisago County, Minnesota, United States, located 35 miles northeast of the Twin Cities. The population was 4,442 at the 2010 census. Lindstrom’s slogan is America’s Little Sweden. U.S. Route 8 serves as a main arterial route for the community.

In 1853, Daniel Lindstrom left Sweden in search of a nice piece of land to settle in America. The town of Lindstrom was incorporated in 1894, 41 years later. Many other Swedish emigrants traveled with Daniel Lindstrom, including Erik Norelius, whose personal journals in part formed the basis of Vilhelm MobergÕs novels of the Swedish emigration to the United States, The Emigrants. Moberg’s novels have two main characters, Karl Oskar and Kristina Nilsson. The novels depict the hardships Swedish emigrants endured en route to America. A bronze statue of the author, holding his bicycle as if ready to ride away, stands on a stepped platform in Chisago CityÕs town park. An image of Karl Oskar and Kristina remains LindstromÕs logo today. Since 1990, anyone who has taken U.S. Route 8 from north of Forest Lake to Lindstrom has driven on the Moberg Trail.

Lindstrom celebrates Karl Oskar and Kristina annually with Karl-Oskar Days. This event takes place mid-July and includes such activities as the coronation of a Karl-Oskar Princess, parades, a street dance, and fireworks. There are still statues of Karl-Oskar and Kristina in Lindstrom as a tribute to the early Swedish immigrants whose descendants continue to populate the area. These statues are the main attraction for tourists from all over the world who come to Lindstrom because of its Swedish heritage.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 3.69 square miles, of which 3.60 square miles is land and 0.09 square miles is water. Lindstrom is located 10 miles from the Wisconsin border and less than two hours from cities such as Duluth, St. Cloud, and the Twin Cities area. When looking at the town from above, it looks like it could be an island due to the surrounding lakes.

As of the census of 2010, there were 4,442 people, 1,774 households, and 1,265 families residing in the city. The population density was 1,233.9 inhabitants per square mile. There were 1,943 housing units at an average density of 539.7 per square mile. The racial makeup of the city was 97.0% White, 0.4% African American, 0.2% Native American, 0.6% Asian, 0.3% from other races, and 1.4% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 1.2% of the population. There are five schools in the area, which accommodate around 3,600 students k-12. The five schools, Primary – Kindergarten – Third, Lakeside – Third – Fifth, Taylors Falls Kindergarten – Fifth, Middle School – 6-8th, and High School – 9-12th.
