"The Small Friendly German Town On The Dakota Prairie"
The name Leipzig dates back to early 1015 in Germany. The Slavic
word means “a settlement by the lime trees.” In 1813, the Emperor of Austria wanted
to establish German colonies in Bessarabia.
In the latter 1800's many colonists saw better opportunities in
America. The Leipzigers from Leipzig, Bessarabia came to America & started a
settlement named Leipzig, in Grant County, in 1896.
