Conrad Weiser Homestead [PA]

The Conrad Weiser Homestead is a Pennsylvania state historic site 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 Homestead includes period buildings and a new orientation exhibit, on a 26-acre Olmsted-designed landscaped park.

The site offers exhibits, tours, educational programs, and occasional recreational and educational events (including living history events).
