An large group of Volga Germans arrived in Topeka on 28 November 1875. They were from the colonies of Herzog, Katharinenstadt, Liebental, Beauregard, Ober-Monjou, Neu-Obermonjou, Mariental, Louis, Marienberg, and Graf.  Within a few months, hundreds of Volga German families arrived in Kansas, and today there are Volga German descendants in most towns and cities across the state.
