Though a peaceful farming people, the Old Prussians were pagans, which attracted the attention of the German Teutonic Order. Prussia was slowly and painfully overrun and subdued. The Germans replanted their own population on much of Prussian soil. They were known to proclaim, "We're the Prussians now!"

First sighting of Yuppie on metal balcony walkway. This house looks like a huge grain elevator with metal industrial walkways. This monstrosity towers over the charming vintage beach cottage next door. I've never seen human life signs before inside this building.
