Schoenbrunn Village showcases the history of Ohio - it was the state's first settlement. You can find it inside Ohio's Amish Country!

First settled in 1772 by Moravian Missionary, David Zeisberger, Schoenbrunn (Delaware for "Beautiful Spring") 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.
