A Revolutionary

Journey into History.

Heinrich Knauss built this continental-style log house in 1777 – the height of the American Revolution. Today, the Knauss Homestead stands as a reminder of Emmaus’ past – and hope for the future.

Originally a 200-acre tract of land, the Knauss Homestead grounds today feature the main house museum, an 18th-century barn and the Emmaus Remembrance Garden.

The Heinrich Knauss House is an exceptionally well-preserved example of a culturally identifiable Germanic floor plan, designed with an internal chimney and distinct room arrangement. The property preserves important 18th century features including original finishes, flooring, sashes, doors and a foil complement of associated trim and wrought iron hardware.
