1. Dogwood Quilt Block Marker
Inscription.  This quilt block is displayed in memory of Maurice and Marie (Fuchs) Landwehr. Marie learned to quilt from her mother when she was a young girl. Her passion for quilts kept her busy quilting at home and also with "The Quilters" at St. John's UCC, Bem. The Dogwood Appliqué was Marie's favorite design. Each of her children and grandchildren have quilts she created just for them, so her legacy lives on. They would like to share this quilt block in memory of their parents and grandparents.
 
Erected by Owensville Chamber of Commerce.
