So stop by, have a look around and then have a bite to eat with us. See you there!

With winter behind us we have picked up the construction projects on the house. The basement has been the main focus with the installation of windows, the completion of the bathroom, and installation of a small kitchen. The exterior of the house also got new gutters. The original living area of the house is still a major work in progress, with walls and floors being the biggest challenge. As always, we like to thank the talented craftsmen and loyal volunteers who have helped us in our endeavor to preserve and restore the Wyneken House.

During the past month several major projects have been completed on the house. A new concrete floor was poured in the basement and  a furnace was installed. Now we have some heat for those winter activities! Within the last few weeks the project to replace the bricks around the outside base of the house was beautifully done. It was a challenge working with Civil War era bricks that were created by hand. But the bricklayer stated it was a “good” challenge! We are so thankful for the blessing of wonderful craftsmen to help us in our heartfelt restoration project.

On June 22nd the Friends of Wyneken sponsored a bus tour for the Palatines to America, a genealogical society that studies Germanic immigration to North America. The organization was in Fort Wayne for a national conference. Since this area is rich in German heritage, FOW offered a look at our unique history, with the concentration on Friedrich Wyneken and his profound influence on Lutheranism in Adams and Allen counties. In addition to the Wyneken House, the congregations of Zion Lutheran (Friedheim) and St. John’s Lutheran (Bingen) in Adams County and Emmanual Lutheran (Soest) and St. Paul’s Lutheran (Fort Wayne) in Allen County were the focus of the tour. It was a very enjoyable and informative day. We want to thank the participating congregations and their members who opened their churches to us and provided us with a presentation of their church’s history, along with food and drink.
