The Warkentin House Museum in Newton, Kansas was the home of Bernhard and Wilhelmina Warkentin. Bernhard had come to the US from Altonau in the Ukraine and had encouraged other Mennonites to migrate to Kansas. A highly successful miller, he built this Victorian home in 1886 - 87. He died from an accidental gunshot on a trip in the Holy Land in 1908, but Wilhelmina continued to live in the home until her death in 1932.
