“drink & check out the flowers”
These are historic gardens surrounding the ten room, brick and stone home of New Ulm brewer August Schell built in 1885. The Schell's, immigrats from the Black Forest region of Germany, settled in New Ulm in 1856. After establishing a successful brewing company, the Schells built this home to mimic the estates they remembered from their homeland. The pines surrounding the house (not native to the New Ulm area) were brought in from northern Minnesota to assist in this recreation. The house, grounds and neighboring brewery are on the National Registry of Historic Sites. The gardens have a formal layout with a long axis. Walkways, stone walls, arbors and benches are features within this partly sunken and partly shady garden.
