New Bremen, Ohio is an incorporated village in Auglaize County. The area was settled on the south edge of the Great Black Swamp, atop the Loramie Summit, a ridge that separates water drainage to the Ohio River on the south and Lake Erie to the north. Many of the community’s founders were Bavarians and Hannovarians, who had come to America from Bremen, Germany. When they arrived in 1832, they named their new community Bremen, which was changed to New Bremen when a post office was established.
