Swedeborg is an unincorporated community in northwestern Pulaski County, Missouri, United States. It is located approximately five miles northeast of Richland on Route 133.


Swedeborg was platted in 1878, and named for the fact a large share of the first settlers were Swedish. A post office called Swedeborg has been in operation since 1881.
