WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) and Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) applauded the passage of their resolution in the United States Senate celebrating Lindsborg on the 150th anniversary of its establishment. This resolution commends the people who have made Lindsborg the town full of rich culture it is today and honors the immigrants of the Varmland province of Sweden for settling in Lindsborg.

“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 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 that the United States Senate passed our resolution honoring this impressive milestone in the town’s history.”

Lindsborg, located in McPherson County, was established on Feb. 20, 1869.

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