SAHS is a 501(c)3 organization.



The Swedish American Heritage Society of West Michigan, an affiliate of the Swedish Council of America, was founded to preserve, foster and perpetuate traditional customs and culture of our Swedish heritage, as well as that of other Scandinavians.

Swedish Heritage Day!

The Governor proclaimed Sept. 15, 2017, as Swedish Heritage Day in Michigan, stating: "Swedish Americans continue to strengthen and enrich our country and Michigan through their culture, pride, industriousness, and commitment to the principles upon which our great nation was founded."
