Wohlfahrt Haus Dinner Theatre

170 Malin Drive

The name "Wohlfahrt Haus" was chosen to honor early pioneer Wilhelm Ludwig Wohlfahrt, born in 1718, who immigrated to America from Baden, Germany in 1750 on the vessel "Phoenix", captained by John Mason of Rotterdam.* Johann Wilhelm Ludwig Wohlfahrt married Margaretha Hoag, and settled in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. His son, Johann Ludwig (Lewis) Wohlfahrt, traveled to Wytheville, Virginia, married Christina Elser, and resided on the Lewis Wohlfahrt Land Grant. Both are buried in the cemetery at St. John's Lutheran Church, one of the older churches in Wythe County. Their daughter, Margaretha (called Peggy) married Peter Shrader. They resided in Wythe County and are buried beside Lewis and Christina Wohlfahrt in St. John's Cemetery.

Their son, Jon Lewis Shrader, settled in Bland County and married Christina Day. Both are buried near their homestead on Wolf Creek Mountain. John Lewis fathered a son, Joseph Michael, who married Emily Catherine Lambert. During the Civil War, John Lewis and Joseph Michael exchanged places on the battlefront, one staying at home tending their farmlands while the other fought for their country. Joseph Michael and Emily Catherine are both buried approximately two miles down Wolf Creek Valley, near Niday in the Shrader Family Cemetery, also located on Wolf Creek Mountain.

Joseph Watson (Watt) Shrader, son of Joseph Michael and Emily, married Bessie Alderman and they resided on a farm near Rocky Gap, Virginia. Both are buried in the Shrader Family Cemetery. They raised one son and three daughters, one being Emily Pauline Shrader who married Arnold Scott Hutchinson. They are the parents of Bobbie H. DeHart and Peggy H. Sutphin, grandparents of Richard F. (Rick) DeHart, Jr., Scott C. DeHart and Charles Patrick Sutphin and Great Grandparents of Christopher Scott DeHart, Jessica Emily DeHart and Eden Noel Sutphin.

Went to see the Wizard of Oz. Enjoyed the show, and the food was decent. Service was attentive and friendly. While this isn't Broadway, we thought the performance was quite good. We loved the little kids playing their part in the show as well as the adult performers.

Food was good. Roast beef was excellent! Theatre was fair. Not a bad deal for the price. Unfortunately one of the lights fell off the catwalk above and hit me on the head! I got a "credit for a future show" within the next 12 months, however I don't live near there. Grateful it didn't hit any of the senior citizens who sat all around me. That would have been catastrophic!
