Howard County's 1908 Gruber House

ST. PAUL, Neb.- If you are traveling through the community of St. Paul, you might want to spend a little time visiting the Howard County Historical Village.

One of the highlights of the historical village is the Gruber House. Marion Bahensky is a former president of the Howard County Historical Village, and has worked with volunteers to restore this unique home in town, which happens to be a stone's throw away from the historical village. Marion even spent some of her own money to restore the exterior of the home.

"Frank Gruber was a brick maker, a baker, he was into laundry, and quite successful," Marion Bahensky says. "They built the home in 1908."

Marion told Pure Nebraska's Brad Anderson during an interview that the home served a number of purposes over the years. But, the historical society had some nice furniture, clothing and pictures, and decided to acquire the home and turn it into a place where the public can visit.

The Howard County Historical Village also has a wonderful Christmas celebration, where the buildings are covered with lights. The holidays are a great time to see this attraction.
