In 1832, 97 Germans met in Cincinnati to purchase a section of land for settlement.
Designated leader Francis J. Stallo and six others set out from Cincinnati on foot, heading to the land office in Miami County.
They had $800 in silver coins, the fixed price for a section of land, which they carried in a tin box. Stallo made a plat, divided the 640 acres of land into 144 shares, named it Stallostown, and officially established the town that is now call Minster on September 28, 1832.
