Pioneer Schandua House

Built before 1880, this house was purchased by John Schandua, a local merchant, shortly after his marriage to Bertha (Klein) in 1883.

The front room, called “Die Stube”, served as a bedroom and living area. The back room was used as a bedroom for their children.

Gingerbread woodwork accents the posts on the front porch.

The residence was used for a short time as a Sunday School building for the Bethany Lutheran Church.
