About this Exploration:
This historical marker is dedicated to the two groups of settlers that were the early pioneers of Victoria. In 1873 there were the well-to-do gentleman farmers from England who established the town of Victoria. They did not have the endurance or interest in the farming way of life and many eventually moved back home to England.
In 1876, Germans from Russia arrived and built dugouts and sod houses north of the English colony. They proved to have the hardworking spirit needed to be successful on the harsh Kansas prairie. The English brought with them the first Aberdeen Angus cattle and bob-tailed ponies and the Volga Germans brought with them hard winter wheat and their strong religious faith.
