A German-Swiss settlement, 4 miles southeast, started by immigrants, early 1880s. Guided here by Joseph Ottenheimer "to this land of great opportunity" they found it to be a wilderness. Undaunted they built crude log cabins, then cleared the virgin land and developed it into a highly productive agricultural area. By 1886 a Lutheran and a Catholic Church had been built.
