Their economic base, the same as that of many urban centers of this county, is related with the agricultural-industrial production.

It was founded November 15 1919 by the German colonist Engineer Carlos Culmey, the banker Ernesto Hessler (of I Behave Cheerful, Brazil ) and the priest Jesuit Max Von Lassberg, under San Alberto's invocation.

A place called Dry Stick was chosen ", next to the coast, where they were still remains of a frustrated previous colonization.

It owes their name to the extraordinary wealth of the place and the depth of their waters that made possible the port installation.
