Schoenbrunn Village State Memorial
The Moravian church founded Schoenbrunn ("beautiful spring") in 1772 as a mission to the Delaware Indians. The settlement grew to include sixty dwellings and more than 300 inhabitants who drew up Ohio's first civil code and built its first Christian church and schoolhouse.

Problems associated with the American Revolution prompted Schoenbrunn's closing in 1777. Schoenbrunn's story features a rare meeting of Indian and European cultures and a fascinating perspective on the American Revolution.

Today the reconstructed village includes seventeen log buildings, gardens, the original mission cemetery, and a museum and visitor center. The site also includes natural areas and picnic facilities.

July 22 Great summer trip! by C. Harmon
I have lived in the Dover-New Phila area all my life and ventured here with my family and always loved it. So when I decided to take my boys age 8 & 5 I knew they would love it too. And they did! A fantastic step back into time. A must see for history buffs and all! Adults and kids will love this park.
