Dating from 1698, Old Swedes Church is located near the site of the original Swedes' landing and represents one of only two remaining examples of Swedish-American church architecture. Sitting in the center of a tree-shaded, historic graveyard, the church has box-type pews, which seat approximately 250 persons when the gallery is used. The surrounding neighborhood is a mix of low-income housing and light industry.
Additional information about Old Swedes Church and Cemetery may be found on the Old Swedes Foundation website.
