Peter Wentz Farmstead Society
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Peter Wentz Farmstead is a stone house with architectural and aesthetic elements that reflect the German heritage of some of PA’s earliest settlers. Built nearly three centuries ago, this farmstead plays a significant part in our state and our country’s history as it served as General George Washington’s headquarters during the infamous Battle of Germantown on October 4, 1777. The restored site now appears just as it did during the American Revolution, so a visit here truly takes you back. Be sure to save time for the gift shop, in which you’ll find an old-style loom that you can actually use to make your own custom creation.
