History of Gotha
The town of Gotha was founded in 1885 by a German immigrant H A Hampel. After buying 1000 acres, the majority of acreage still designated as United States territory, he laid out a town and named it after his birthplace of Gotha, Germany. He then sent out pamphlets to northern cities advertising the warm climate and mild winters. In time several German American families moved to and settled in and around Gotha.
