Morro Reuter (German, Reutersberg) was first settled by German colonists, mostly coming from Hunsrück, in 1829; the first house was built by Mathias Mombach, a former soldier of Napoleon's Imperial guard. A first Lutheran church, also used as a school, was erected in 1872; the same year, João Wagner, born in 1826 in the region of Trier, established the first private school in the settlement.
