Early Swedes in Pennsylvania

Early Swedish colonists came to the New World in eleven voyages between 1638 and 1656 and some of the settlers were in what is present day Pennsylvania.  For more information see the history section of the "Old Swedes' Episcopal Church" http://www.old-swedes.org/History4522.php


The oldest church building in Philadelphia, Gloria Dei was nicknamed Old Swedes because its founding members were Swedish Lutherans who moved from Wilmington, Delaware  in 1643. For more about this church see  http://www.whyy.org/tv12/HolyPhilly/GloriaDei.html
