1843 home of original settlers:
“Uprooted from Prussia and transplanted in America”…
In 1843 over 800 Prussians settled in the Niagara frontier, with the main settlement being in Niagara Falls / Bergholz. The basic outline of the first community is still easily discernible. Many of the descendants of the original families still live here in Niagara Falls. One of the original cabins that housed many families during the first Winter in 1843 is still preserved and is now the Das Haus Museum.

“I visited Das Haus and talked with the docent regarding my family name and showed the brief pieces of information I had. They were so helpful and I found out the burial places of my great, and great great grandfathers.”…John Schultz
