Early Years of the Stanchfield Baptist Church
Join us on our journey as we explore the early years of the Stanchfield Baptist Church and its daughter church in Springvale, both in Isanti County, Minnesota. Founded in 1866 by a group of 25 hardy immigrants from Orsa parish in the province of Dalarna, Sweden, the SBC became one of the most important congregations of Swedish Baptists in Minnesota. Although almost all records were lost in two tragic fires, efforts by genealogy enthusiasts and descendants of the early immigrants are starting to piece together the fragments and recreate the story of these tireless pioneers. This website serves as a repository and also sounding board for this project. We welcome your suggestions and feedback!
