The Friends of the Swedish Cabin is a volunteer, non-profit organization with a Board of Directors and membership open to individuals and organizations. Its primary purpose is to preserve the Swedish Cabin so that future generations can be afforded a glimpse back into the past, and that this glimpse will, in turn, foster an appreciation for traditional Swedish culture and values, and for the preservation of historic sites and buildings. Each member of the Friends of the Swedish Cabin has a special affection for this unique site.
It is our hope that education of the young will help to develop the cabin’s next generation of Friends, and that these Friends will ensure that the cabin continues to stand, offering a window into the past.
