The Madawaska skola (school), originally built in 1876 on Rista Road. An 1877 map locates the school on lot 87 while a 1922 map locates the school on lot 85. The building no longer exists.
In 1922 Olof O. Nylander assembled a display of photographs, maps and charts of the Maine Swedish Colony which he displayed at the three hundredth anniversary of the founding of Gothenburg, Sweden. The series of display cards, or samlats, each featured several photographs of homes, businesses and community members from New Sweden, Woodland, Perham and Caribou.
This photograph is from samlat 7.
