The Friends of the Hillsboro Museums hosted an anniversary party marking the 50 years since the historic Peter Paul Loewen House was moved from its original location southwest of Hillsboro to the present location at Ash and D streets.

A variety of activities marked the occasion, including tours of the house (formerly known as the Adobe House), the nearby Friesen Windmill, informational presentations and German music. Nearly 100 meals were served during the noon faspa (traditional light meal).
