The history of Minnesota Hungarian immigrants fits well into the frame of life in Minnesota. It represents the rich tapestry of the states ethnic composition and it also reflects some unique features of this small colony to set forth here. The number of Hungarians coming to Minnesota was never substantial, 2,283 being the peak at the 1920 census.

The Gábor Baross Society (Baross Gábor Egylet) was established in 1892 to provide social and financial assistance to Hungarians in St. Paul and surrounding city. Click here to view the society's basic principles in the original Hungarian and here for an English translation.
