History & History Related Items

Muenster history:

Muenster began as a community of German settlers in 1889. Carl and Emil Flusche, along with Joseph Rueschenberg were the first residents. They wanted to name their new town Germany, but the name was already taken. They then decided to name it Muenster after the capital of their homeland. Though dairy farming and agriculture were the main parts of the local economy for many years, the discovery of oil here in 1930 changed things. Manufacturing became a prominent part of the economy. The German culture has remained important in this town of mainly German ancestry. Tourism in the area has increased due to this emphasis. The fame of the town's ethnic food draws in many visitors each year.
