Fahlstrom Cemetery

  

This cemetery was named for Jacob Fahlstrom, who converted to Methodism in 1837, and for his work as a missionary to Indians and as a lay preacher to white settlers.  He is considered the first Swede in Minnesota.

This is the smallest cemetery in Afton, with only about a dozen graves.
