Swedish-American festival at Good Templar park
In 1924 several Good Templar fraternal temperance lodges purchased a 66 acre park in Geneva, Illinois, near Chicago. By the 1930s many individual Good Templar members had built "sturgas" or cabins in the park. Each summer a Swedish-American festival is held. (By the time of World War I most Good Templars in America were Scandinavians, and the strength of the organization in Europe was in Sweden and Norway.) For more, see here.
