German Village is one of the premier historic restorations in the world and the largest privately funded historic district on the National Register of Historic Places.
Schiller Park has been a Village Center for festivals and neighborhood activities since the early 1800's. Today the park accommodates garden tours, festivals, playgrounds, the work of the Actors' Theatre, a newly renovated recreation center, and most recently, the Umbrella Girl sculpture.
The German Village Society coordinates planning, policy, civic relations, historic preservation, and community activities.
