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-Indigenous settlers, Joseph and wife Barbara Schneider, Pennsylvania-German Mennonites. Today, history comes to life as costumed staff demonstrate traditional tasks in step with the seasons. Come by for a visit and enjoy hands on activities, workshops, special events, gallery exhibits, and more! Visit schneiderhaus.ca
