Danish People's society, Danish social conditions, Danish communities
In 1894, J. C. Evers, an approved representative of the land committee (Landudvalg) of the Danish People's Society (Dansk Folkessamfund) stood observing the vast prairie of Wharton County, Texas. Within his heart he held a dream which was seeded, grew, blossomed and continued to bear fruit. Named the Danish capital of Texas in 1990, Danevang is the harvest of the first settlers of the colony.
