Welcome to the 1803 House

in Emmaus, Pennsylvania

In 1803 Jacob Ehrenhardt, Jr. built this stone, Federal-style home for his wife Susanna and their four daughters, Barbara, Anna Marie, Anna Eleonora and Suzanna.  At that time it was located near the Moravian Church, surrounded by crop fields, the South Mountain and a stream nearby on a plot of land owned by his father, Jacob Ehrenhardt Sr.  Read more about the history of the 1803 House...

Take a Tour...step inside and go back in time to the early 1800's after the Moravians had settled in Emmaus.  The house preserves the architecture of the Moravian culture of  Colonial Pennsylvania and illustrates the lifestyle of Colonial America. This beautiful renovated "time capsule" of the past is a vital link to our heritage and one of the oldest structures in the borough of Emmaus.
