Established in 1894 in southern Wharton County, its earliest settlers were Danish immigrants who relocated from the Midwest to Texas to extend and promote Danish culture in the U.S. Historical records, kept by these early settlers and following generations, are now housed in the Danevang Museum. Danevang was declared "The Danish Capital of Texas" by the Texas Legislature in 1990. Danevang, translated from Danish, means "Danish Fields."
