Summary

Title, date and keywords based on information provided by the photographer.
The villages were built and settled in the 1850s by German Pietists, who were persecuted in their homeland by the German state government and the Lutheran Church. Calling themselves the Community of True Inspiration, they lived a communal life until the mid-1930s. The villages are now tourist attractions, known for their generous family meals and interesting craft shops.
