Schoenbrunn Village... Where Ohio's First Settlement Began.

Visit Ohio as seen through the eyes of its first settlers.

First settled in 1772 by Moravian Missionary, David Zeisberger, Schoenbrunn (or "Beautiful Spring" in the native Delaware language) has become the window into our states past. Schoenbrunn Village grew to include over sixty dwellings and 300 Delaware Native Americans and Moravion missionaries. These residents drew up Ohio's first civil code and built its first Christian church and schoolhouse.

Today, the recreated village and museum share the same perspective of where Indian and European cultures meet in peace, but are infuenced to flee by forces beyond their control around the world. In addition to cabins, school and church; visitors can explore God's Acre, the original Village cemetary; the museum and the theater. A gift shop, park and beautiful picnic area are also on site.
