Swiss homestead open each Saturday this summer

Your opportunity to step into Bluffton and Pandora's past; open 1-5 p.m.

FROM BLUFFTON ICON - Summer open houses at Schumacher Homestead began last Saturday.

“Are you a ghost?” a little girl once asked Schumacher Homestead volunteer Susie Gratz, who was dressed in the somber black cap, long full dress, and apron worn by women in the Bluffton-Pandora area Swiss Settlement in the mid 1800s.

Gratz assured the youngster that she was real and alive, and could show her how families in the area lived more than 150 years ago.

This summer, Gratz will be one of more than a dozen guides who will give tours at the “Swiss Haus” at 8350 Bixel Road, welcoming visitors from 1-5 p.m. on Saturdays, now through the end of August.

FROM BLUFFTON ICON - It's trout derby week in Bluffton.

The 75th annual Bluffton Sportsmen's Club trout derby, originally set for May 5, was moved on Sunday, June 9, due to the spring flooding in Bluffton. The derby takes place in the Buckeye.

The number one trout for this year's Trout Derby is named "Big 75" - not in reference to the nearby Interstate, but in honor of the 75th year of the Bluffton Sportmen Club's trout derby.

Derby details
Trout number one is worth thousands in cash if caught during derby hours. The jackpot is built up with $5 donations to a 50/50 drawing.
