Hertzog Homestead Dates Back to the 1700’s

The Hertzog Homestead has an interesting history. Like many early pioneer settlers, Jacob Metzler came to America fleeing religious persecution. He and his wife built this homestead on 70 acres around 1786. In 1835 a parcel of their land was sold to build Metzler’s Mennonite Church.

Hertzog HomesteadScott Hertzog, your host, grew up in this home while his parents farmed barley, corn, alfalfa, soybeans, and sorghum, and raised beef cattle. Today the farm is operated by Amish and Mennonites neighbors. You’ll often see horse-drawn farm machinery out in the fields.

The Hertzog Homestead Bed and Breakfast opened in 2003. Scott has a passion for genealogical research. His wife Kristen has been an Amish tour guide and has worked in the local tourism industry for 15 years. Scott and Kristen’s son is now the ninth generation to live on this homestead.

Metzler’s Mennonite Church, a nearby Amish one-room schoolhouse, and the road in front of the homestead are all named after Jacob Metzler.
