1961 Description of New Germany - New Germany in the northwest corner of the township was a settlement of farmers of German extraction. It has two blacksmith shops, two grocery stores, dry goods store, a saloon, a school house and an Old Stage Coach Inn. The main thoroughfare running from Cincinnati through Dayton, Fairfield, Springfield and Columbus, passed through New Germany using the Old Stage Coach Inn as a stopping place. New Germany had a band organized in 1896, which played at political rallies, picnics and many other places where they were in demand.

Present Day - The town of New Germany has been consumed by progress, but its remnants are still there to see. Located at the current intersection of Colonel Glenn Highway and Grange Hall/National Road, a portion of the land is now Federal property allocated to WPAFB, other portions have become part of the Meijer Superstore and the business park adjacent to Home Depot.

Many of the streets indicated on the inset map are still there, and homes from the 1930’s and 1940’s can still be found along National Road and Germany Lane. Colonel Glenn Highway was formerly known as Zink Road and boomed as Dayton’s “Third Street Extension”.
