Fulda Wood Duck

Our Community

Fulda was incorporated as a village on November 21, 1881 and was primarily settled by German settlers, though also by the Scandinavian and Irish.  The community was named after the Fulda community located on the Fulda river in Germany.   We are predominantly an agricultural city that grew up with the railroad and although that rail line was discontinued in 1980, a beautiful two-story depot is maintained as an antique museum and store.   We are home to a civil war cannon housed in our city park which was purchased in 1892.

There are three schools in Fulda.   Fulda Elementary School, Fulda Secondary School (also known as Fulda High School) and St. Paul's Lutheran School.    Fulda Public Schools mascot is symbolized as a "Raider" and is one of the few remaining rural schools that have not consolidated with neighboring towns.


Fulda is located on beautiful Seven Mile Lake, which has camping and recreational picnic areas.    We have a stunning golf course, city park, public library and quaint shopping and dining.     Our Community Education program also runs our indoor pool facility.


Our Schools


Fulda is the "Home of the Wood Duck" due to the large number of colorful wood ducks that migrate through the region, and man-made nests attached to trees are common throughout the city.     The annual Wood Duck Festival is held in June and features picnics, a parade, carnival, musical and talent performances in the park.  The Wood Duck Festival features some of the best fireworks in the area!
