Independence Day at Schifferstadt

July 4, 2024

House Tours:   2:00pm - 6:00pm

Outdoor activities:   2:00pm - 8:00pm

Step back in time to the era that spawned the war for independence. See the 1758 home of Elias Brunner, a pioneer settler who helped track violations of the trade embargo with Britain and whose descendants fought in Washington’s army. The family that escaped political oppression in the Old World was not about to accept it in their New World.

Colonial era games for all ages, food and drink. House tours, of course.
