WEST SWEDEN, TX
WEST SWEDEN, TEXAS. West Sweden was eight miles northwest of Brady in west central McCulloch County. Ernest Severin, a Swedish minister from Austin, founded the community in 1905, bringing several Swedish families from Travis and Williamson counties. The name West Sweden was chosen because a town five miles east of Brady was already named Sweden. A school and several scattered houses marked the community on 1948 county highway maps, but they had disappeared by the 1980s.
