The Homestead bookstore is full of history based books and we are proud to be able to sell a line of redware products from Robesonia Redware, who crafts heirloom and museum quality redware items.

Conrad Weiser Homestead Spring Lecture
March 22, 2015
| 2 p.m.

The Friends of Conrad Weiser Homestead are happy to announce our Spring Lecture topic. It is “Massacre of the Conestogas.” by Jack Brubaker from Lancaster Pa. Mr. Brubaker published a book in 2010 under the same title. The talk will go into detail about the Paxton Boys massacre of the Conestoga Indians in Lancaster County during the time period of the early 1760’s.

Please come out and support the Friends and learn more about this interesting time in Pennsylvania colonial history. The talk will be held in the Education Building and will start at 2 pm.


The Conrad Weiser Homestead is a Pennsylvania state historic site located in Womelsdorf, Berks County, Pennsylvania which 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 Rt. 422, within easy driving distance of Philadelphia, Lancaster, Hershey and Harrisburg. Come and enjoy this rural countryside dotted with the surviving period stone houses and traditional farms. The Conrad Weiser Homestead includes period buildings, and a new
orientation exhibit, on a 26-acre Olmsted-designed landscaped park.

Special Summer Hours starting every Sunday from June to Labor Day Sunday. Noon to 4 P.M.
