Edna StaeblerMore Than Just Schmecks Appeal

In More Than Just Schmecks Appeal, we take a look at the fascinating 100 year life of local author Edna Staebler, how she got her start in creative nonfiction writing, and her successful series of Mennonite cookbooks that established her as a household name in the Region of Waterloo and beyond.

In Digging into History, we ‘uproot’ the stories and memories of historic gardens across the Region of Waterloo. We look at how historic gardens have functioned in heritage settings, such as Schneider Haus, as well as the histories behind some of our more contemporary plots within the Region, like the beautiful Rockway Gardens.



PickwickPast Times

In Past Times we take a nostalgic look at the games and leisure activities that have been popular within the Region of Waterloo throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. We’ll visit the histories of favourite gathering places such as Victoria Park and Chicopee Ski Hill, local theatres and drive-ins, and even explore Schneider Haus’ own recreational past.
