Sauerkraut City was a community of German immigrants who lived south of Chili. Such as William Wagner had a farm 2 miles south and 1/2 mile west along what is now Hwy. 10, north side of the road. The Neinas farm was across the road, from the Wagner farm, south side of road. The Frank farm was 1-1/2 mile south and 1 mile east of Chili, not far from the Wagner and Neinas farms.


There were Sternitzkys, Barths, Schmitz, Dreschers, Kleinschmidts and other German immigrant families in that location; thus the tag "Sauerkraut City." I found these names on lands of the late 1890s plat books. They bordered on the southern line of Town of Fremont and northern line of Town of Lynn. It seemed that every little community had a "name," such as Windfall Corners, Heathville, South York, North York, Wilcox, and many, many more, which have disappeared now the roads as county roads, and all rural roads have been named for identification making it easier when giving directions where someone lives, rather than saying, "So and so lives in Sauerkraut City."  Dee Zimmerman
