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.
The Conrad Weiser House is a designated National Historic Landmark. Of over 90,000 places listed on the country's National Register of Historic Places, only some 2,500 are recognized as National Historic Landmarks
