What, you ask, do I know about Freedhem, Minnesota?
Almost nothing, except I used to work with someone from there. Looking at the atlas photos, I recognized a few names, then looked on a map to find where Freedhem is. Ah, northwest of Pierz!
From the pics below, it was a cool little pioneer town once, with more than one business, two churches, a cluster of houses and, by 1910, a twelve-piece string band who were proud enough to have their picture taken together (scroll down)...no small feat for a tiny town out on the prairie.
Here's what Clara Fuller had to say about the town in her "History of Morrison and Todd Counties, Minnesota" (1915):
(I assume no Swede wanted to pay to be in her book because she mentions the kind, hard-working, open minded Swedish people in Little Falls as well as in the towns mentioned, but no one by name...☺).
If you have anything to add, leave a comment, ok?
