In addition to the Sila Lydia BAST BELL MUSEUM, we also include admission to the Germantown Volunteer First Company Museum with its 1929 Seagrave Fire Engine and other exhibits, a walking tour map of the Historic District with a stop at the WWI Memorial to Germantown soldiers who served in the conflict, all located in our 9.5 acre park.

The Valentine WOLF HAUS Museum & Research Center is in the restored 1854 German fachwerk (half-timbered) residence/shoemaker shop constructed from logs cut on the property. In this house where they began their new life in America they raised their 12 children. All these original buildings are located on a 6 corner intersection called Dheinsville District.

CHRIST CHURCH Museum of Local History
. The congregation was founded in 1842, one of the oldest in Washington County, and the oldest in Germantown, by settlers from the Hunsruck area of Germany. It was called Evangelisch Christus Kirche. In 1890, three bells were purchased for the new bell tower, which are still rung today. Next to the church is a pioneer cemetery.
