Proceeds from the sale go to the Heritage Society’s Mary’s Playhouse project. Located behind the 101 year old Heritage House, a former chicken coop was transformed into a playhouse for the young Schulze daughter many years ago. Currently the rebuilding of this structure is taking place. When completed, tours of the playhouse will serve to educate children about the history of their community.
