To visit Oldenburg is to be in “small town” rural Germany itself. Platted in 1837 by German immigrants, it was named for their home province in North Germany.
Oldenburg, called “The Village of Spires” for its magni cent steeples, has century old stone and brick buildings, pressed tin facades, crafted cornices, and bilingual street signs, attesting to its old world influence.
The town, with 80 of 115 historical homes constructed prior to 1900, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
All proceeds from our festival are donated back to our town of Oldenburg in many various ways. We take pride in our town by helping preserve its historic beauty! ... Browse a few of recent projects, as we are currently working on creating a complete list of the projects we have been involved in.
