. . . Frohna, Missouri . . .

Frohna is named after the town of Niederfrohna[6] (German: Lower Frohna) in the Zwickau district of the German region of Saxony. Although the German colony was initially called Niederfrohna, the Nieder- was eventually dropped from the name.

Frohna is one of seven towns and villages in the area founded by German immigrants in 1839. Frohna and the others — Altenburg, Dresden, Johannisberg, Paitzdorf, Seelitz, and Wittenberg—were all named by settlers for towns in the Saxony region of their native country.[7]

Concordia Lutheran Church

Concordia Lutheran Church is a member of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod. The Saxon Fall Festival is held every October at the Saxon Lutheran Memorial.[8]
