A Rich History

About the Name…

First settled in 1847 by John Diamond and Jacob Spores, the small community gained fame for a beautiful stallion imported from Coburg Germany by a local blacksmith. The horse had such a reputation that the blossoming town was soon known simply as “Coburg.”

A fascinating heritage has awarded the City of Coburg recognition as a National Historic District, encompassing over 187 sites and structures.
