In late July 1831, a group of German immigrants set sail on "Famous Dove", bound for Baltimore, MD. Only 2 people (both children) didn't survive the journey. As they approached America, a storm blew them off course to land near Cape Henry, VA. The immigrants eventually settled in the area of Jenera, OH and founded St. Paul Lutheran Church. The Shipwreck Festival is a celebration of God saving the immigrants from certain death in the storm and is still celebrated today!
