  • I am a native Frankenmuther whose ancestors came from Franconia, Germany along with the group of Lutherans that founded Frankenmuth in 1845. I would like to point out that the German-theme that "pervades" (as you say) the town comes from the roots of its history...and was not just a whim taken from a trip to Europe. Many of the residents from my parent's generation still speak German, and are proud of the basic farm community that began as a mission congregation. Frankenmuth also has a strong Missouri connection in that it is home to St. Lorenz Lutheran Church...one of the largest congregations in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. So come see the real Frankenmuth (Courage of the Franconians) which is so much more than "a huge tourist gimmick"
