NEW ULM — In March, Gwendolyn and Zach Rubosky moved to New Ulm from the Twin Cities. Three months later in June, Emily and Eli Dahl moved to town with their young daughter Eloise. A month after that, Susan and Brian Peterson moved from Willmar to New Ulm.
The Rubosky, Dahl and Peterson families have more in common than being new to New Ulm. All three families are, in fact, part of the same family.
Susan and Brian Peterson are the parents of Emily and Gwendolyn. The two sisters, along with their parents agreed to move to New Ulm as a family. Gwendolyn said initially the plan was for everyone to move to New Ulm within five years, but they all managed to do it within five months of each other.
The Peterson family — including Gwendolyn and Emily — originally lived near Winona, but soon after the kids went off to college, Susan and Brian moved to Willmar.
Gwendolyn attended college at Cedarville University in Ohio where she met her husband Zach. The two graduated from college in 2020 and were married soon after.
