New Prague is a city in Scott and Le Sueur counties in the state of Minnesota. The population was 7,321 at the 2010 census.HistoryOriginNew Prague was laid out in 1856, and named after Prague, the capital of Bohemia (now the Czech Republic). New Prague was originally built up chiefly by Czechs.At the advice of Catholic Bishop Rev. Joseph Cretin, Anton Philipp, a native German, first settled within the present limits of New Prague. In 1856 Philipp purchased 160 acres in Helena Township, Scott County. Philipp did not make an official plat of the town but began selling lots that same year, marking the beginning of New Prague. Several Bohemian families came to the area shortly after Philipp arrived.Late 1800sNew Prague’s early development was not spectacular for a variety of reasons. First, during the Civil War years, 1861-1865, European immigration almost stopped as European immigrants were naturally wary of the U.S. Civil War. Second, located in the middle of the Big Woods, the enormous challenge of clearing fields proceeded at a slow pace.
