The original settler on this site was Joseph Bechtel who arrived in 1802, and who was ordained a Mennonite minister in 1804." Includes three photos and one painting of the elm tree and a a note that reads: "Erected by the 200th Anniversary Committee of the Preston and Wanner Mennonite Churches 2000."
