Homesteading in Saline County


In February, 1869 a large group from Galesburg and Swedonia arrived and settled in the Salemsborg community. By Spring 1870 all the available land in the area was taken. In September 1869 the Salemsborg Lutheran Church was established which served the local and surrounding farming area.
