Swedish Pavilion


category : Historic Buildings
The Swedish Pavilion is one of seven historic buildings on display at the Old Mill Heritage Square. The Swedish Pavilion was Sweden's exhibit at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis. At the close of the World's Fair, it was donated to Bethany College. Transported on flat cars to Kansas, it became a center for the arts at Bethany College. In 1969 it was moved to Heritage Park. In 1973 it was put on the National Register of Historic Places.
