A temporary exhibit at Lindsborg Old Mill & Swedish Heritage Museum.
This special temporary exhibit tells the story of the youngest person to ever assume the U.S. Presidency, using pictures and Theodore Roosevelt’s own writings.
At first glance, the pairing of President Theodore Roosevelt and Lindsborg might not seem an obvious one. Looking into the history, however, reveals a number of times where the thread of his life became interwoven with that of the City and the Swedish Pavilion. Roosevelt visited Lindsborg twice in his lifetime (in 1900 and 1912). In 1904 he selected the Swedish Pavilion – the historic building that still stands on the museum grounds and that houses the exhibition – as one of just a few stops he selected among the international exhibitions on display during the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis.
The exhibition is included with each museum admission. The museum is celebrating 150 years with a Buy One Get One museum admission coupon. Find the coupon here under the tab Plan Your Visit.
