    Arrow For the Americans: Name the Towns in Your Area That Are Germanic in Origin.

    I live in what is officially called "Central Texas".
    Within this area we have:

    New Braunfels
    Schulenburg
    Luckenbach
    Schertz
    Niederwald
    Boerne
    Weimar
    Comfort
    Fredericksburg
    Muenster
    Frelsburg
    New Ulm
    Milheim
    Shiner
    Gruene
    Uhland
    Buckholts - from Buchholz, Germany
    Groesbeck - from Groesbeek, Netherlands.
    Clifton - Just north of Waco
    In May 1997, the Texas Legislature officially designated Clifton as the Norwegian Capital of Texas. Clifton and the surrounding area was settled by Norwegian immigrants in the mid-1800s. The nearby community of Norse is the final resting place of Cleng Peerson, commonly recognized as the "Father of Norwegian Immigration to America." The founder of Norse was Ole Canuteson, (Ole Knudsen) from the Stavanger region of Norway.

    National Socialism is the only salvation for Germanics and Europids everywhere. Capitalism, libertarianism, and communism is the enemy.

    National socialized collectivism must prevail over radical individualism.

    Not that I know of but then again I've only lived up here for just a single year.

    ( I'm originally from the southern midwest from the wonderful state of Kansas where I grew up from.)

    [However I have lived in so many states over the years that you might as well say I'm from all over the place.]

    Please Name the Towns in Your Area That Are Germanic in Origin.

    Do you mean German or Germanic? Most place names around here are Germanic, at least partially if including Anglo-Saxon names. There are few French names & a few Indians but for the most part the founders were of Anglo-Scottish & German stock & the names refelct that.

    The only non English one I can think of at the moment is Bettendorf, Iowa.

    Most of the cities around here are named after French explorers and Amerindian names.

    oh and Bismarck, ND, but that isn't really 'near' me..

    A lot of West Michigan has Germanic names since the Dutch settlers just renamed the new towns after the places they had come from. Thus we have Holland, Graafschap, Bentheim, Overisel, Zeeland, and others I'm sure, but those are the ones I can remember from where I grew up.

    Frankenmuth is a really nice little German town on the opposite side of the state, not far from Flint. I'm planning on going there in a couple weeks once the Fall color gets closer to peak.

    Is the name "Davenport" German also? The -en ending strikes me as German.

    Davenport is part of the Quad Cities (which also includes Bettendorf) and is home to the German American Heritage Center.

    Scott County, where the first passenger railroad crossed the Mississippi River, was the entry point for many immigrants to the upper Midwest region and points west. In 1900, Joseph Eiboeck, a veteran German newspaperman, described Davenport as, “the most German city, not only in the State, but in all the Middle West, the center of all German activities in the State”.

    Founded on August 1, 1994 as a private, not-for-profit organization, the German American Heritage Center (GAHC) seeks to preserve the heritage of our German speaking ancestors for present and future generations and to enrich our knowledge of the German immigrant experience.
    The Quad Cities have a white population of over 90% and are only 5% hispanic. I would say that the vast majority of that 90% are descendants of the original Germans who settled there
