History:  

NEW PRAGUE, incorporated as a village in March 1877, and as a city in April 1891, is crossed along its main street by the line of Le Sueur and Scott Counties. It was named for the ancient city of Prague, the capital of Bohemia, from which many immigrants came here. The community was first settled in 1854; the Minneapolis and St. Louis Railroad came in 1877; its post office was named Oral, 1857-72, when the community was part of Scott County only, changed to Praha, 1872-79, and Prague, 1879-84, at which time the name was permanently changed to the present one.
