The Knauss Homestead Preservation Society | Emmaus, Pennsylvania Historical Site

A Revolutionary Journey Into The History of Emmaus.

Built in 1777 by Heinrich Knauss for his Father, Sebastian Knauss, the Knauss Homestead is a living tribute to the founding of the Moravian community of Emmaus, as well as the United States of America during the Revolutionary War era. Whether you’re a descendant of one of our founders, or just interested in the rich history of the Lehigh Valley, you’ll find your history here at the homestead.
