Walk the brick-paved streets of German Village, one of the capital city's most vital and historically prominent neighborhoods. Beginning as a haven for German settlers in the mid-1800s, the neighborhood, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is renowned for its preserved architecture and its hearty citizenry, such as Max Visocnik, who gave us Max & Erma's in 1958, and the Schmidt family, proprietors of the famed Schmidt's Restaurant and Sausage Haus--a German Village institution for more than one hundred years. Join the German Village Society's Jody Graichen as she recounts the struggles of the German immigrants, the rise of the neighborhood and the efforts to preserve a Columbus jewel in this collection of columns previously published in ThisWeek Community Newspapers, with a foreword by Dr. Wayne P. Lawson, The Ohio State University professor and director emeritus of the Ohio Arts Council.
