Historic Downtown Buildings


category :
Historic Downtown Buildings By 1882 Stromsburg had two brickyards furnishing
material for businesses, churches, and homes.
Buildings of "native brick" still standing include the
opera house (now converted into Viking Center,
and Viking II and III), the Wilson Block, Svenska
Varen, and a number of homes.


As evidence of the ethnic interests, the first
churches established included a Swedish Baptist in
1873, a Swedish Lutheran in 1874, a Methodist
Episcopal in 1875, a Swedish Methodist in about
1880, and a Presbyterian in 1881. Still active is the
Baptist, Methodist, and Lutheran, with the addition
of an Evangelical Free, and a Covenant Church.
