Founded in 1772 as a Moravian mission, the village is reconstructed to appear as it did over 200 years ago. As the Moravian missionaries, led by David Zeisberger, spread education and Christianity throughout the region, the Christian Indian population of Schoenbrunn Village grew. 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. David Zeisberger’s grave may also be visited nearby in Goshen on State Route 416. Goshen was a mission village founded after Schoenbrunn. Today, 17 reconstructed log cabins, the original cemetery, and 2 acres of planted fields are available to tour. This site is owned and managed by the Ohio History Connection.
