1. Dheinsville Settlement Marker
Inscription. Established in 1842, by the Philip Dhein family, Dheinsville is Germantown’s oldest crossroads settlement. The village contains original half-timber buildings (fachwerk), reflecting the building-construction patterns of the early pioneers who came here from the Hunsruck area of Germany. The historic commercial center is comprised of log, quarried limestone, brick and clapboard buildings dating from early settlement through the Victorian period. An important part of eastern Wisconsin’s 19th-century settlement corridor, Dheinsville preserves the built environment of pioneer life.
