English Das Haus und Der Stahl
Das Haus und Der Stahl, also known as Das Haus Museum, are a small campus of buildings containing artifacts that represent the early years of German Lutheran settlers in Western New York originating from Prussia in northern Germany. The buildings were restored and maintained by the Historical Society of North German Settlements in Western New York as a museum of area German heritage. The museum is located in Niagara Falls, New York on the site where Das Haus was originally built. Potter Charles August Mehwaldt created his fired-clay decorative and functional items across the street from the campus.
The Historical Society of North German Settlements in Western New York also hosts Plattdeutsche (Low German) events for residents of the area who continue to speak this language.
