In the middle of the 19th century, German immigrants to Chile were encouraged to settle around the shores of Lake Llanquihue. This historic timeframe has been suspended at the German Colonial Museum. Among the five buildings at this outdoor park is this farmhouse on a hill. It was built in 1889. Inside of Casa Patronal is period furniture decorating the bedrooms and other living space plus original utensils in the kitchen. You get a real sense of what colonial life was like among these early German pioneers.
