Description: This image shows the village at the Schoenbrunn Mission in New Philadelphia, Ohio. Schoenbrunn, founded in 1772 as a Moravian mission among the Delaware Indians, was the first Christian settlement in Ohio. Although the village prospered for several years, pressures from encroaching settlers and British-aligned Indians forced the abandonment of Schoenbrunn in 1778, shortly after the start of the Revolutionary War.
