Aldea San Antonio - History

History

In January 1887, nineteen families from Huck, Russia immigrated to the southern part of Entre Rios Province. The immigrants traveled through Saratov to Hamburg where they boarded a ship that took 28 days to reach Buenos Aires. After three days in Buenos Aires they traveled again by boat to Diamante where they arrived at Aldea Protestante (Protestant Village). In this village, a former neighbor Heinrich Herdt and his wife Anna María Hergenreder with their children Philipp Herdt, Johannes Herdt and Katharina Herdt were living.

In Aldea Protestante, there was no land available for purchase by the newly arrived families from Huck and they were invited by a German diplomat, Johannes Spangenberg, to buy his land in Pehuajó Norte where he had an "estancia" (a hacienda or large farm) with his brother Jacob.
