Frankenmuth, Michigan

A German settlement known throughout the State for its chicken dinners, served harvester style, and its Frankenmuth beer. It was settled in 1845 by a group of Franconians from Bavaria and, later, by refugees from the unsuccessful German revolution of 1848.

The neat village, spread out for some distance, has retained its German flavor; most of the inhabitants are descendants of the original settlers and speak the German language.

from Michigan: A Guide to the Wolverine State, 1941

I highly recommend taking a trip to experience the sights and sounds of Frankenmuth.
