Isaac Meier Homestead

The Isaac Meier Homestead is a large limestone dwelling located along route 501 in Myerstown. Originally built by Valentine Herckelrod in 1738, it was purchased by his son-in-law, Isaac Meier, in 1757. What Meier did architecturally to the house is a prime significance for understanding the history and development of material culture in 18th century Pennsylvania. The eastern part of the house remains Germanic in detail but the western half is composed of parlors, bedrooms and a central hall all of which exhibit an English Georgian influence inspired buy Palladian architecture. The Meier Homestead is being preserved for appreciation of local heritage.

Informational tours of this historic property are given on the Second Saturday of each month, April through October, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. with the exception of September.
