Shantz Family Farm

Painting Description

A request by the Shantz committee, preparing to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of their family’s arrival in what has become Waterloo Region, sparked this re-creation. This original farm, located in the east of Kitchener, was founded by Christian R. Shantz. Successive members of his family added buildings and refinements to make the mature farm shown in my painting. I have a special interest in this historic view as I am also a member of the Shantz clan.
