A small Germanic farming community that was, until recently, located in the flood plain of the Missouri River. In 1993, after four consecutive floods, the town fathers chose to relocate the town. What made the relocation unique was that, of the 52 houses in the town, 32 were physically moved to the town's new location.

The relocation of the community is now a textbook case for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as federal funding was used successfully for the first time in the relocation of an entire town: today, the population is roughly the same, and most of the residents are those who participated in the relocation project, and new residents are regularly moving in.
