Explore the Historic Kiesling House. Constructed in 1861; it survived the US – Dakota War of 1862, tornados, blackbirds, grasshoppers, and city development. It is one of the few structures in Brown County, from that era, that is accessible to the public.

Learn about early pioneer settlement, customs, and traditions of area immigrants. Discover and reexamine events, like the US-Dakota War of 1862, that shaped New Ulm. Examine the development of community and influence of social and political issues on area residents.
