The Junior Pioneers’ purpose is to “keep green the memory of the pioneers who settled in New Ulm and the vicinity: and to preserve as much as possible the usages and customs, language, and ideals of the early settlers.”
The Junior Pioneers were formally organized by the children and descendants of the original settlers on Sunday afternoon, February 25, 1912, in the preparation for the 50th Anniversary of the “Dakota Conflict of 1862”. The Society is a 501(c)3 charitable organization.
