Basavilbaso, Departamento Uruguay, Entre Ríos Province

Names: 
Basavilbaso
Basso
Lucienville
History: 

Originally founded by Jewish immigrants (it was the first Jewish colony in Argentina), the town grew up around the the Gobernador Basavilbaso Station of the Ferrocarril Central Entrerriano railway company. The first train arrived on 30 June 1887, and this is now regarded as the foundation date of Basavilbaso. The Jewish immigrants called the colony Lucienville and it extended south to include the nearby community of Gilbert in Departamento Gualeguaychú.

Many Volga German families later settled in Basavilbaso.
