History & History Related Items

Frankenmuth history:

A group of fifteen German-Lutheran missionaries came here in 1845 to teach Christianity to the Chippewa Indians. The group was organized by Pastor Johann Konrad Wilhelm Loehe from Neuendettelsau in Bavaria. 680 Acres of land were purchased from the federal government and a log cabin was built to be used as a combination church, school and parsonage. The church was named St. Lorenz. After the Chippewa moved west, the area evolved into a settlement for German Lutherans which welcomed many new immigrants through the 1800's.

In 1962, Frankenmuth chose Gunzenhausen, Germany as its "sister city," which relationship continues today. German customs and language remain a large part of the Frankenmuth culture.

The name comes from Franken which is the province from which the settlers came and Muth which means courage in German. The name Frankenmuth means "Courage of the Franconians."
