Hendrickson House

Hendrickson House is one of the oldest houses in the U.S. state of Delaware and one of the oldest surviving Swedish-American homes in the United States.[citation needed]

The house was originally built in the early 18th century in Chester, Pennsylvania as the home of Swedish farmer Andrew Hendrickson and his wife, Brigitta Morton, who were both born in the New Sweden colony. In 1958 the house was moved to Wilmington, Delaware. The Hendrickson House is part of Old Swedes Historic Site, which includes Old Swedes Church (1698–99) and burial ground (1638), a National Historic Landmark.[1][2]
