The Nicholas Stoltzfus Homestead is a stone-built English colonial-style house built in the early-1700s in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. After passing through the ownership of several families, the property, including the stone house and a barn, was bought in 1771 by Nicholas Stoltzfus and Christian Stoltzfus. Nicholas and his wife Anna Elisabeth and their 4 children emigrated from Zweibrucken, Germany before purchasing the house. For many years the tract of land was a working farm. The Stoltzfus family were part of Old Order Amish Anabaptist group. The Nicholas Stoltzfus family are the progenitors for all the Stoltzfus surnames in America.
Today the historical house is restored to accommodate tours, special educational programs, showcase Berks County Amish history and to experience colonial life style from the 1700's. The barn is a Sweitzer replica built in 2021. The 1500 square foot barn and 1 acre grounds are available for special events, such as weddings, family reunions, corporate picnics, etc. Amenities includes a public restroom, small kitchen and heat & A/C.
Adjacent to the Berks County Parks and Trails. Along the Tulpehocken Creek. Close to shopping, restaurants, and downtown Reading.
