History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

This town was part of The Triangle Tract. Settlers began arriving before 1806. The town was created by a mandate of the New York State Legislature in 1813 to break up the west part of the county into three new towns named Bergen, Sweden and Murray.

The town of Sweden was established in 1814 from the Town of Murray in Orleans County. The first Sweden town meeting was held on April 5, 1814.

Lake View Cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.
