Per the Governor’s direction in “Life Sustaining Business Frequently Asked Questions,” which was updated on
May 8, no museums will open during the Red or Yellow Phases. At this point in time, Berks County is still in the Red Phase. Our site is a Commonwealth properties and will follow the Governor’s direction in terms of timing for reopening.
We had hoped to see you in June, but we will wait for further guidance on when opening is safe for everyone.
Please stay safe.
The Conrad Weiser Homestead is a Pennsylvania state historic site in Womelsdorf, Berks County, Pennsylvania, that interprets the life of Conrad Weiser. Weiser was an 18th century German immigrant who served as an Indian interpreter and who helped coordinate Pennsylvania's Indian policy. He played a major role in the history of colonial Pennsylvania.
The Conrad Weiser Homestead is located on 26 acres of land. Seven total buildings exist on the property; three are open for touring. Two large monuments, a gazebo, the Weiser Family Cemetery, and a pond are also on the site. Two picnic areas are present in the western section of the park and can be utilized at any time without reservation. The park is an attractive venue to walk, run, or play Frisbee. Public restroom facilities are available. Dogs are permitted, but must remain on a leash.
The Homestead does not maintain or collect any genealogical information about the Weiser family descendents. We, as a State historic site, maintain and promote Conrad Weiser and his story.
Any questions about geneology should be directed to the Weiser Family Association.

Yes, we are currently closed.
But, this is a temporary situation. In time, the restrictions will be lifted and the Friends will be ready to open the site to visitors, give tours, and keep the stories of Conrad Weiser alive. We are working remotely at this time and will respond to any inquiries received through voicemail or email. In the meantime, we are staying home, spending time with family, and, most importantly, staying safe. So stay safe and we hope to see you soon.
