A BRIEF HISTORY OF ROMANIAN IMMIGRATION TO MINNESOTA
The Romanian community in Minnesota was established around the early 1900s. Driven by poverty and the hope for a better life, Romanians began arriving as part of a larger Eastern European wave of immigrants, settling mainly in St. Paul and South St. Paul. While Romanian immigration decreased significantly after WWII and the spread of Russian Communism, it picked back up after the fall of European communism at the end of the 1980s.
Motivations for immigration, as well as cultural and social backgrounds, are highly diverse. A great effort is underway to document the incredible stories of Romanians immigrating to Minnesota over the last century.
