The City of Menno was founded by German-Russians who first came to the United States from 1847 to 1848 and settled in Nebraska. The area around Menno was settled in 1874 after delegates were sent north to find land on which to develop permanent settlements. The residents of current day Menno, different and yet united in spirit, are proud of their heritage and still celebrate it.  Located in the southeastern part of Hutchinson County, Menno continues to hold its small town character.  We invite you to contact us with your questions or comments regarding the information displayed on our pages.
