The Schumacher Farmstead was built in 1843 as part of the Swiss settlement in the Bluffton-Pandora area. Located on the Riley Creek, this 7 acre property included a main house, summer kitchen, workshop, large bank barn and other outbuildings. The large bank barn was built in 1854 during the Pioneer era and is one of the oldest barns in the area.
The Farmstead is open on Saturdays June – August from 1 – 5 p.m., host of annual events throughout the year, and open for scheduled tours.
The Farmstead is home to the Swiss Community Historical Society.
