Reimer House - 1878

100 0673Built in 1878, this log house is a typical Mennonite home moved from the nearby village of Hochfeld.  It's 130 years old in 2008. 

You will notice the inside chambered ceiling and the detailing on the outside of the window frames.  Also note the dovetail log construction at the outside corners of the house.

The house was lived in until about 1980, shortly after which it was moved to the museum grounds.
