Photo 13-AMO-10


Freedhem Evangelical Free Church, 203 Street & County Road 48, Freedhem, Minnesota. Purposely burned July 5, c. 2003-05, in order to prevent problems by vandals.

The Swedish Free Evangelical was organized at Sam Bloom’s home. At this meeting a name was selected for the little settlement. Freedhem, which in Swedish means “Peaceful Home”. In May 190l the church was incorporated. The Sam Bloom family donated two acres in the northwest corner of their land to build a church and create a burial place for the settlers.
