SWEDEN HOLLOW. Sweden Hollow begins five miles west of Brady in eastern McCulloch County (at 31°09' N, 99°17' W) and runs southeast for five miles to its end, seven miles south of Rochelle (31°08' N, 99°14' W). The elevation falls from 1,730 feet above mean sea level at the beginning of the valley to 1,650 feet at the end. An intermittent stream flows through Sweden Hollow and empties into Brady Creek. The valley probably takes its name from the nearby community of New Sweden.
