Manning Hausbarn Heritage Park Tours

Boasting tourists from all over the nation, even some from beyond our country’s borders, the Manning Hausbarn Heritage Park has built a reputation on providing guests with an enjoyable experience that has been described time and again as “just like a mini-tour of Germany.” See the historical Hausbarn, the early 20th century bungalow style home and farmstead and the beautifully preserved Trinity Church. In addition to the historical attractions, the park also offers a modern Konferenz Centre that provides new, clean handicap accessible restrooms, a large hall for meetings and a dining room with a beautifully crafted stone fireplace. And don’t forget to stop at the Schon Gerzen Gift Shop before you leave!
