“A little piece of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

A great lesson in the history of the early settlers in the Tuscarawas Valley. An interesting site to learn a little of the history of this area. The guides are a volunteer staff that will tell you about all the areas of Schoenbrunn from graveyard to school and church. There is a lot of walking and I don't recommend it if you have trouble in this area. You can almost feel the indians of times past watching you.

“Very neat historical site.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

Very interesting place to visit. The bottom area picnic shelters are rundown and not kept up. It's a shame because they would be nice areas to have family picnics/reunions.

As participants we hope those of you who came to the event had as much fun as we did. We taught weaving to children and demonstrated 18th Century Living cooking and lifestyle.

“Schoenbrunn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

This is such a great place to visit and get a real feeling for how life was in the beginning here in Ohio. The cabins, the gardens, and the museum help us to imagine what it must have been like to live here. I love the live demonstrations of candle making, old times children's games, and others. The tour guides are knowledgeable. I also love the lantern tours and church services.

“History brought to life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

For $5.00 we got to go back in time. We learned about the origins of many phrases that were practical and are still used today. We learned about medicines, living conditions. the Christian Indians and a conflict that should never have happened. Everyone in period costumes, muskets were being used, rules of combat explained. We enjoyed this very much.
