|Schamers or Cimer. It was the central market town|
where our ancestors would have traded for things they couldn't make.
|Marion and Heinz outside a Binder house on Schamers' north side.|
Check a following post about this...
|I was delighted to go into the courtyard of a couple of the houses there.|
You could easily see how the space was used back then.
|I'm pretty sure this was outside behind the second gate|
of the farm house below.
|Heinz standing in the narrow courtyard between houses. That's the front gate beyond him.|
See the green house, and warm-colored building behind
him?--they're the Binder houses.
Above is the alte (old) house #42 and below right is the fancy new haus. I believe the green house with the St Joseph statue is #40 (which only makes a diff to us when we're checking the church books).
|The Binder house, #42, with a statue of St Joseph|
still embedded in the wall., as it was
around 1900, above.
The cool connection here has to do with a Wanek relative--when we got to Neuhaus (Jindrichuv Hradec), Heinz and Melitta took us to a restaurant (above) right across from the entrance to the castle, in Dobrovskeho Square. The restaurant owners are Libor Rostik and his wife Iva Rostikova...who are also the restorers of the buildingwe're standing in front of, above left.
A lovely couple, the food was savory and delicious at the restaurant,and the house in Schamers is lovely...check it out!
Here's the farmhouse at Schamers #40 if you can't translate that page ☺. Here's a photo of the inside; it has vaulted ceilings, tile floors and a sweet outdoor area that would have been the farmyard once. It's beautiful.
