New Ulm in Brown County, Minnesota — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
Pioneer Founders of New Ulm
Beinhorn (1821-1900), a visionary from the North German province of Braunschweig, founded the Chicago Land Association and in 1854 helped to organize the New Ulm colony along the Minnesota River in the recently opened Minnesota Territory. A few years later Pfaender (1826-1905), a born leader from the South German province of Wuerttemberg, led a contingent of Cincinnati Turners to consolidate with Beinhorn's experiment in living on the prairie. Under their leadership the newly amalgamated German Land Association prospered.
