Chortitz Housebarn

This style of dwelling is traced back to Prussia/Poland where the Mennonites settled during the late 1500’s. This house barn was constructed in 1892 by Jacob Teichroeb in Chortitz Village, south of Winkler. The house displays typical Mennonite architectural features such as the central brick heater system, Mennonite chest, Kroeger wall clock and other traditional furniture.
