Back in 1833, when the German settlers first came to our area,
they were looking for a place that most reminded them of home.
Germantown, which first began as Hanover, was just the place. Linden
trees that were carried with the Germans all the way from home
were planted in the existing church lot. These trees are
to be slow growing and strong which seems to be a perfect symbol
for our town.
Germantown Community Development, GCD,
has been established to help promote and welcome potential
businesses and visitors\
A doctor's office
An egg processing facility
A daycare facility
A retirement home
help beautify the streets, Christmas wreaths and Germantown
banners were purchased by GCD from various fundraisers such as
Chicken and Beer dances. Also as you enter Germantown, Christmas
lights frame our lovely lake around the holiday season thanks to
the help of many volunteers.
Thank you for visiting!
