In 1896 Rosa married Peter Casper, Thus the designation Alten-Casper House to indicate the first and last families to actually use the house as a family home. In 1995 the Alten-Casper House was turned into the Tree House thus known today, where every day we serve fresh unique lunches and a nice selection of handcrafted teas.
