Chellberg Farm

A farm that is part of my family's history is now part of a national park! My great-great-grandmother's brother Alfred Borg married Emily Charlotte Kjellberg on September 29, 1897 in Porter County, Indiana. After their marriage, Alfred and Emily lived at the Chellberg Farm (which had been purchased by Emily's parents in 1869) until 1901. The farm is now part of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, which is managed by the National Park Service.
