The Victorian home of Bernhard Warkentin and Wilhelmina Eisenmayer that Warkentin built in 1886. This home is a splendid example of the Victorian period in American Architecture and furnishings. Bernhard encouraged Mennonite immigrants to bring Turkey Red hard winter wheat. The hardy, high-yield variety gave Kansas its enormous productivity and made this region the breadbasket of the world. This was made possible by the arrival of cattle and railroad grants for immigrants. The house museum is open for tours on weekends in the spring and fall and Wednesday-Sunday in the summer and other times by appointment. Call the Newton Convention & Visitors Bureau for tour inquiries or more information.
