New Philadelphia History

In the place now known as New Philadelphia, the Moravian Church had founded Schoenbrunn or "beautiful spring" as a mission to the Delaware Indians. This was in the year 1772. There was a substantial settlement that grew up in this area but Schoenbrunn closed down in 1777 following problems related to the American Revolution. The town of New Philadelphia was founded by John Knisely in 1804. It is home to the reconstructed village that was once Schoenbrunn. In the 1800s, agriculture was the major occupation of the German immigrants who had settled in New Philadelphia.
