Inscription. In the early 1870's, fourteen settlers purchased this beautiful spot located on the north bank of the Big Cottonwood River and named it Jägers Ruhe (Hunters' Rest). The objectives of this group of hunters was to preserve this property for their children and their children's children, to preserved the natural beauty for posterity, and to accommodate people who wanted to enjoy a day or an afternoon in the open away from the humdrum of everyday life.
The owners of Hunters' Rest had maintained the four and one-half acres of property until the sale to the "Junior Pioneers of New Ulm and Vicinity" in 1923. The Junior Pioneer Park has lost none of its natural beauty in the intervening years and with the exception of the weekly target practice by the hunters, the Junior Pioneers of New Ulm and Vicinity have continued the objectives as set forth by the hunters club.

The Junior Pioneers of New Ulm and Vicinity formally organized on Sunday afternoon, February 25, 1912, at Turner Hall to begin developing plans for a pioneer home-coming during the 50th anniversary observance of the 1862 Dakota Uprising. The newly formed Junior Pioneers of New Ulm and Vicinity began what remains today as an active organization to unite its members as a social and benevolent society and as such to keep green the memory of the early pioneers
