Rollingstone, Minnesota is one of the largest Luxembourger-American communities in the United States. It was established by a group of immigrants from the Grand Duchy immediately after the Land Office opened in Winona, Minnesota in March 1855. Between 1855 and 1900 over three-hundred different families from Luxembourg-registered their claims in the Rollingstone Village and surrounding farm region.
These men, women, and children laid the social, political, religious, and cultural foundations of contemporary Rollingstone.
Old Rollingstone still stands as a reminder of the Luxembourgers who founded their town on a plateau rising between two branches of the Rollingstone stream.
