Winnetka residents Charlie Nesler and Andrew Peters are shown with their unique contributions to Winnetka history and the Schmidt Burnham Log House.  Nesler crafted a set of four five-foot-long pine benches for use by groups visiting the Log House.  They are similar in style and design to ones that would have been found in the house during the mid-1800s.  Peters created a timeline listing important dates in the history of the Schmidt Burnham Log House and illustrated the key events.  The timeline is on permanent display in the house.
