New Sweden is a small unincorporated community in northeast Travis County, Texas, United States.

The community was established in 1873 and was known then as Knight's Ranch. The Swedish Evangelical Lutheran Congregation was established on February 23,1876 and initially carried the name Manor until 1887 when it was renamed and took the name, New Sweden. With the establishment of the New Sweden Lutheran Church, the community became known as New Sweden. A cotton gin began operation at New Sweden in 1882, and a post office opened in 1887.[1]
