Schoenbrunn Village


The year was 1772 and the Revolutionary War had not yet reached this “Ohio Country.” That same year, Moravian Missionaries, led by David Zeisberger came here and built Schoenbrunn Village and helped spread education and Christianity throughout the region. And in doing so, the Christian Indian population of Schoenbrunn Village began to grow. Crops, the tending of livestock, hunting and craftwork in addition to schoolwork and religious teachings made up a day in the life of a Schoenbrunn resident or visitor. Today, 17 reconstructed log cabins, the original cemetery, and two acres of planted fields are available to tour, and the village is reconstructed to appear as it did over 200 years ago. Schoenbrunn Village also marks the southernmost point of the Ohio & Erie Canalway America’s Byway. We hope you’ve enjoyed your journey through our past and present!
