Relationship with the City of Wuerzburg, GermanyMrs. Dorothy Beebe was the motivating force behind relief action for the city of Wuerzburg, Germany following World War II. She called upon her hometown of Faribault, Minnesota and the town responded. Faribault would eventually adopt the city of Wurzburg in 1949.
The 50th Anniversary of that adoption was celebrated in Wuerzburg on April 28, 1999. The nineteen Faribault residents who attended the celebration returned with deep admiration of Wuerzburg, its citizens, and the renewed friendship between the two cities. The Faribault delegation also found a new source of pride in their hometown.
