Abstract Yiddish-speaking homesteaders from Eastern Europe settled in this remote prairie town in response to free land and a dream of life on the farm. Thirty-one families eventually formed a tight-knit community and organized the Chugwater Yiddishe School, a one-room schoolhouse. Most Jews eventually left, but a few families stayed until the 1930s.
