Karlsruhe, Beresan

Founded in 1810, Karlsruhe was a Mother colony in the Beresan area.  By 1840, there were 88 farmers, each of whom had use o1 178 acres.  The colony as a whole owned about 16,200 acres of land. You can see on the map that there is quite a bit of area set aside for livestock (viehweide).

And if you zoom in very closely on the Google map below, you can see a link to the remains of St. Peter and Paul Catholic church, a quarried stone, Gothic-style church completed in 1885.
