Norka grew from a frontier settlement founded by 753 people in 1767 to over 14,000 people by 1911. As the colony expanded, daughter colonies such as Brunnental, Rosenfeld and Neu-Norka were developed to accommodate the growing population and their need for land.
Many people from Norka and their descendants have made notable achievements in the fields of education, literature, music, religion, politics and sports. Read more about these people and their stories at the links below:
