Chisago County Minnesota

Chisago County is a county located in the U.S. state of Minnesota. As of 2000, the population was 41,101. Its county seat is Center City. Chisago County is, like many other counties in Minnesota, strongly influenced by the Swedish immigrants that settled there in the middle of the 19th century. It was here Vilhelm Moberg made his research for his The Emigrants suite in the 1950s. His fictional characters Karl-Oskar and Kristina Nilsson from Ljuder parish in Småland settled around the Lake Ki-Chi-Saga (from the Ojibwe language Ki-chi-saga-igun (Gichi-zaaga'igan in the contemporary spelling) meaning "Big Lake-with-an-outlet," which was later shortened to Lake Chisago). The heritage of the early settlers is still honored by the annual Karl Oskar Days in Lindstrom.
