Swedish Cottage

Through the years, the Swedish Cottage served many purposes – a tool house, a library, an entomological laboratory, even a headquarters for the Civil Defense during World War II.

Today it is home of the Marionette Theater, well-beloved by old and (mostly) the youngest. It received its standing troupe of puppeteers in 1947. Since then, they have put performances of the most beloved children plays like Peter Pan, Cinderella, and many others!
A fun fact is that it was actually created in Sweden, where it was created to be a schoolhouse and was transported to the US in 1877 by the request of Frederick Law Olmsted.
That is why you can see both the US and the Swedish flags raised on top.
