The Historic Kiesling House

Thanks for your support this year. This summer, we have tried to tell some great stories about our past and share the crafts and insight into 19th century Minnesota.

Friedrich and Caroline Kiesling, recent immigrants from Germany,  built this home in 1861. It survived the US-Dakota War of 1862 and is the only wood-framed house from that era remaining in Brown County.

Learn about the early settlement, customs, and traditions of area immigrants and events like the Dakota War that shaped New Ulm.  Examine the growth of this German community on the Minnesota frontier. View displays, participate in hands-on craft activities, and watch demonstrations. Stop in the Gift Shop for unique items.

This is the place to begin your exploration of New Ulm, Minnesota.

Hours:  Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day. For group tours, spring, summer & fall & other times during special events in New Ulm, check this page or our Facebook page.
