Since the 1960's, members of the German Village Society have been dedicated to maintaining the historic quality of the buildings and community in German Village. Since their inception, they have helped restore more than 1,600 buildings. Their annual Haus und Garten Tour welcomes guests to this vibrant and historic neighborhood. All proceeds from the Haus und Garten Tour support the historic preservation and education programs of the German Village Society.
