The Swiss Community Historical Society will hold an open house on Saturday June 4, from 1-5 pm. The Homestead is located at 8350 Bixel Road, between Bluffton and Pandora. A special activity for the day will be children’s games, for the young as well as young-at-heart. Highlights will include stilts, game of graces, and hoop rolling, plus more! Visitors may tour the mid-nineteenth century house, summer kitchen, garden, workshop, and barn. Docents will be on hand with stories about the early residents of the house, and information about the various artifacts on display, some of which are original to the Homestead. This open house is the first of three scheduled for this summer. On July 2 there will be handson steel-nib writing, and on August 6 all about drying herbs. “In addition to the open house days, we invite visitors to schedule a tour of the Homestead this summer and into the fall,” says Susie Gratz, tour coordinator. Tours of any size may schedule from Monday-Saturday, 9-5 pm, and Sunday 1-5 by calling Gratz at 419-358-4822 and leaving a message, or emailing her at
