Based on comments from dfly, I believe this is an office complex for Crown Forklift. They've acquired a whole downtown block, infilled the holes, and built a new structure to the rear to front a new parking lot.

The town is in impecable condition, and the quality of builidng is high.  This is part of that "Land of the Cross Tipped Churches" area of German settlement, just north of Minster.

Amazing! I had heard of it, but had no idea it's so well preserved and beautiful.

 

I want to visit the bicycle museum. It once was on Navy Pier in Chicago, but went broke there and the collection was sold and moved -- maybe a couple of times -- and ended up in New Bremen.

 

That's an amazing downtown.

Schön.  Very tidy and cute architecture.  Had some co-workers years ago from New Bremen.  Nice people with a strong work ethic.  Thanks for pix!

Most of the Cross Tipped lands are south/west of Minster, but New Bremen is north of Minster (I believe that is what you were saying anyway):

The city is pretty much owned by Crown. The keep it this clean. They are partially responsible for this preservation. A lot like Longaberger owns Newark or Smuckers owns Orville. But I couldn't tell you these cities are well kept as New Bremen. Thanks for the great photos.

Two of the buildings shown in ink's second photo are seen in this view from 1900 or thereabouts.  These buildings are currently used as office space by Crown.  There is a small fire museum in the building that includes a hand pumped fire engine that belonged to New Bremen and the hose reel shown in front of the fire station in this picture.  Photo courtesy of Crown Equipmnt Co.
