  • This historic church was Lutheran when it was built, and now is part of the Episcopal Diocese of Delaware. The surrounding church yard holds graves from 5 centuries!  more »
  • We went to the old Swedish church this weekend and got a ride for just five dollars of our guide Kyle. Seriously, it was a fantastic experience. Clearly one of the best we have visited in the USA. A must for anyone who is in New York or Washington and is interested in history. For some reason, this part of Sweden's history is not particularly known which is a pity. On the tour you will find out more about the Swedish colony, the ship Kalmar key (which is available as replica in actual size just below the church, do not miss this), the church and people Around the church. The only way to enter the church is, incidentally, by taking the tour.

  • Absolutely fantastic! A must see if you're anywhere around New York/DC and interested in Swedish history, especially if you're from Sweden as I am. Of course you have to take the tour which is only 5 USD. We had a great and enthusiastic guide (Kyle) who told us about the church and the Swedish colony. Personally I have to say without a doubt this was one of the best and most interesting I've experienced anywhere in USA.
  • I help keep it them ratings. I'm pretty much maintenance there
