The Farm and Garden Crew
The Chellberg Farm represents a typical 1890 through 1910 Swedish and Northwestern Indiana farmstead. Anders and Johanna Chellberg, with their young son Charles, made the long journey from Sweden to this country in 1863. After their arrival in northwest Indiana, the Chellbergs became part of a growing Swedish community. In 1869, the Chellbergs purchased 40 acres of land and established their own farm.
