The Germanic fraternal society sons of Hermann raised money to build this statue in the 1890s. It still stands, a copper colossus overlooking New Ulm. For a modest price, you can climb a skinny spiral staircase to the top of the statue. On a pleasant summer day, I could see rolling hills far into the distance, as well as the town of New Ulm charmingly laid out nearby. I'm glad I took the time to visit this piece of local history.
