The Jenny Lind Chapel, constructed in the early 1850's, is named for Jenny Lind, the Swedish Nightingale, who gave a generous donation to Pastor Lars Paul Esbjörn, leader of the Swedish immigrants to Illinois.  

The Chapel became the mother church for hundreds of other churches of the Augustana Lutheran Church in America.  The lower level houses a museum highlighting the Swedish immigration and ancestry of the Augustana Synod, as well as several Jenny Lind displays.  

The Chapel is a ministry of the Northern Illinois Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
