In 1845 a group of 15 German Lutheran missionaries left the Kingdom of Bavaria to bring the word of god to the Chippewa Indians. There settlement here became Frankenmuth.
The whole town emulates Bavarian culture. However, the most unique character of the town is that every street, every building, every house, every business, and every public square are covered in flowers.
As you enter Frankenmuth you smell the flowers before you see them.
The amazing thing is that there is not one dead leaf or flower in the whole town.
