      The name "Plevna" in the Russian language means "City of Churches."  Originally, the Milwaukee Railroad chose to call the new station "Edina."
      Many Bulgarians worked on the Milwaukee Railroad when it was built, and officials of the Milwaukee approved the workers' choice of
      the name "Plevna."   Plevna, Bulgaria, was a historical site where the Russians were engaged in a great battle with the Turks. (1877)
   
      Beginning in 1765, German farmers migrated from Hess, (Hesse-Darmstadt) Germany to the Volga River area north of Volgograd (Stalingrad) Russia.
