History of the Hotel
In 1851 Swedish adventurer Erik Petterson decided that the area of Stockholm, Wisconsin overlooking Lake Pepin would be the ideal site for a settlement. He purchased the land and persuaded other Swedish immigrants to come and help settle the land. In 1856, Stockholm was officially born.
In 1886 the railroad connected the village to farms and commercial centers up and down the river.
In 1914, the Historic Stockholm Hotel was established as a place for newly arrived immigrants and visiting guests to stay. The hotel register still exists and can be viewed when staying at the hotel.
After World War II, the flight to the cities and loss of the railroad station nearly took Stockholm off the map. But the beauty and tranquility of the land was not lost on a new generation of visitors. Starting in the 1970’s, artists and urban outsiders began to trickle into the village and surrounding countryside, reviving old storefronts and homes and creating a vibrant cultural life.
The Historic Stockholm Hotel is still around to provide visitors with a memorable and relaxing retreat. Newly renovated and refurbished, the Stockholm Hotel is ready for your next adventure.
