Since 1847, Hunts Corners has been home to members of the Heymann family who first emigrated to the United States in that same year. The church at Hunts Corners is located at 4552 State Route 547 outside of Bellevue, Ohio in Huron County.
This picturesque location holds a special place in the hearts of the descendants of those first Heymanns who came to the U.S. for a better life. Today, family members return throughout the year to visit the church and view the family pictures and mementos included there. They walk down to the cemetery where generations of family members were laid to rest. The first Sunday of every August, they gather at the Friendship Hall shelterhouse for the annual meeting and reunion.
Heymanns, Heimanns, Heymans, Heimans, and Hymans return to where our family's American story began. They stay at the Heymann Guest House, peruse the names of the memorial brick sidewalk, and reminisce about past reunions, trips back to Kaltenholzhausen, Germany, and loved ones who are no longer here.
Hunts Corners is a rich link to our past. If you're in the area, plan to visit. You'll be glad you did!
Heymann Guest House Offers Privacy, Amenities
Located just a block down the road from Hunt’s Corners at 3057 Sandhill Road is a beautiful home (known to some as “Aunt Ruthie’s house”, the “Bed and Breakfast”, or the “Heymann House”) that is incredibly familiar to generations of Heymanns. During the 1990’s several Heymann Historical Society board meetings were held here due to the graciousness of John Seaman.
Now, the home has been handed to the next generation. John’s children have banded together to care for the home their family has lived in for 153 years. They have spent a good deal of the last year cleaning, painting, buying new beds, and completing general maintenance to make this a comfortable place to stay.
The home functions as a guest house – you are given the key and are allowed to come as go as you please throughout the length of your stay. The house has four bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, a modern kitchen, and a large open first floor. Recent upgrades include a new furnace and air-conditioning throughout the home.
The house’s location near Hunts Corners is near Sandusky, Norwalk, and Milan – locations (especially Sandusky) which draw hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. The propinquity of the guest house to numerous areas of interest is the perfect combination of quiet, private living quarters in a country setting and proximity to tourist attractions.
If you are in the area for a reunion, wedding, or just to visit, call Donna and William Seaman for information and reservations.
