Saxonburg

Twin city Saxonburg (Pennsylvania, USA)

Saxonburg is part of Butler County and is located 23 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. What is now Saxonburg was founded in 1832 by a man from Mühlhausen, Johann August Röbling. In what was then "Germania", Röbling laid the foundation stone for new bridge construction with a group of emigrants from Mühlhausen. This venture also resulted in the construction of Brooklyn Bridge in New York. Röbling was born in Mühlhausen in 1806 and grew up there. Germania was later renamed Saxonburg in remembrance of Röbling's home, since Mühlhausen had been part of the Prussian province of Saxony since 1815. The partnership between Saxonburg and Mühlhausen is based on a friendship that promotes mutual knowledge and understanding between the people and cultures of both countries. In particular, exchanges between young people and contacts between the schools are meant to play a major role in the future. But lively economic, scientific, and cultural exchanges and contacts are also a joint objective of this partnership.
