Tour a 300-Year Old Homestead

The Hans Herr House is the oldest homestead in Lancaster County. Actually, it is the oldest original Mennonite meeting house still standing in the Western Hemisphere.

This museum complex includes three Pennsylvania German farmhouses, several barns and other outbuildings, a Native American longhouse, and an extensive collection of farm equipment spanning three centuries.

The Hans Herr House and Museum collects, preserves, and interprets artifacts relating to the history, life, and faith of Lancaster County’s first European settlers. The museum tells a more complete story of early Pennsylvania life.

Guided tours are available April through November.  Check Hours, Admission Rates, and Directions here.
