New park celebrates Minster heritage


Minster Historical President Mary Oldiges, left to right, talks to passerby Vicki Schwartz, Cathy Bernhold and Jerry Dwenger, all of Minster, about the Heritage Park and Cultural Center being built by the Minster Historical Center with help from the Village of Minster. Behind them are two of three murals painted by Minster native and art major Katie Puthoff. The painting on the left depicts the first log cabin Catholic Church in Minster and German immigrants to the area. The other painting depicts 4th Street as it looked in the early 1900’s when it was prosperous due in part to the Miami and Eerie Canal. The mural not shown is of a farmer in his field which represents the reason most Germans came to the area for land to farm. Oldiges sits on an old grist mill stone that was donated by Harold and Betty Thieman. Additions to the Heritage Park, located next to the Minster Historical Society, will continue.
