Chortitza Colony  (p. 41,42)


Chortitza also known as the Old Colony was settled in 1789. The colony consisted of eight villages at first. New tracts of land were purchased as more families arrived from Prussia. By 1824, the colony had expanded to include eighteen villages. Kronsgarten, not shown on this map, was located near Ekaterenaslav about sixty-five kilometres north of Chortitza.
