The two senators who represent Kansas in the U.S. Senate, Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts, have introduced a resolution in the United States Senate celebrating Lindsborg, ahead of its 150th anniversary, that commends the people who have made Lindsborg the town it is today and honors the immigrants of the Varmland province of Sweden that settled in Lindsborg. Lindsborg, located in McPherson County, was established Feb. 20, 1869. Representative Roger Marshall has introduced a companion resolution in the United States House of Representatives.

“Lindsborg is a town full of rich history, whose residents today still embody the perseverance of its settlers who first made Lindsborg home 150 years ago,” said Sen. Moran. “I am always struck by the kindness of Lindsborg residents, and every time I visit, I leave thinking, ‘I could live here.’ I am pleased to help celebrate this exciting milestone in the town’s history and we look forward to what’s still to come.”

“Lindsborg is a true cultural gem on the Kansas prairie,” said Sen. Roberts. “Over the last 150 years, the town has both persevered and prospered, keeping true to its deep Swedish roots. These traditions will help the town continue to be a wonderful place to call home.”
