About this collection

Wartburg traces its roots to 1852, when Pastor Wilhelm Löhe Neuendettelsau, Bavaria, sent Pastor Georg Grossmann to America to work as a missionary of the Lutheran faith. With five students, Grossmann founded a teacher-training school for German immigrants in Saginaw, Mich.

The college was moved several times to accommodate the shifting tide of Lutheran immigration before permanently landing in Waverly in 1935.

Since then, the campus has undergone many new architectural changes, and this collection contains photographs of the various old and new buildings that contributed to Wartburg's identity.
