Impact Statement
Schneider Haus National Historic Site is a dynamic, community museum located in the heart of downtown Kitchener. A local landmark and one of Kitchener's oldest dwellings, the 1816 homestead was restored and furnished, then opened as a living history museum in 1981. The heart of the complex is a fine Georgian-frame farmhouse that was built by and was home to the area's earliest non-Aboriginal settlers, Joseph and wife Barbara Schneider, Pennsylvania-German Mennonites. Volunteers make history come alive again!
