The Friends of the Jenny Lind Chapel and congregations sharing roots in the historic Augustana Synod invite you to connect with the Jenny Lind Chapel and Immigrant Museum. The purpose is to link immigrant Swedish Lutherans of the 1840's who settled Andover, Illinois with those people who now celebrate their heritage traditions here, including Augustana College in Rock Island.

We would be happy to welcome you as a member into our Friends of the Jenny Lind Chapel, established to help provide permanent funding for the Chapel's maintenance and outreach programs. Occasional newsletters sent to members will keep you informed about events, updates and opportunities. Please fill out this form (Word or PDF) and mail it to
