Schoenbrunn Village is on SR 259 at 1984 E. High Ave., 4 mi. e. of I-77 exit 81. Founded by David Zeisberger in 1772 as a Moravian mission to the Delaware Indians, Schoenbrunn was the first missionary settlement in Ohio. The town grew to include more than 60 log buildings. Its 300 settlers drew up Ohio's first civil code and built the first church and schoolhouse. British and Native American hostilities caused the abandonment of Schoenbrunn in 1777.
The village has 16 reconstructed log buildings, an original mission cemetery and planted fields.
