Loewen House

Loewen House

The historic Peter Paul Loewen House, another listing on the National Register of Historic Places, is a traditional Russian clay brick house built in 1876 in the Mennonite settlement village of Hoffnungsthal. The house features a Russian Mennonite straw-burning oven-furnace combination. It is the last remaining house of its kind in North America. Here visitors will see a small but very important collection of handmade Russian Mennonite furniture (the museum is one of only four museums in North America known to collect and exhibit Russian Mennonite furniture). The house is the last surviving restored Russian Mennonite structure of its kind in North America. Call 620- 947 3775.
