Jenny Lind Chapel

Jenny Lind, left a lasting footprint in Illinois and was the first international “rock” star to visit America.  Her generous donation of $1,500 to the Reverend Paul Esbjorn, pastor to a flock of Swedish immigrants who settled in Andover, the first community in Henry county.  The donation provided the foundation to build a new church now known as the Jenny Lind Chapel.  The “Swedish Nightingale” is featured in the museum below the Chapel and it also showcases early immigrant experiences through the exhibits, audio, and video available for viewing.
