This week, we visit the 1803 House in Emmaus, PA!
The House is located on South Keystone Avenue and is one of the oldest structures in Emmaus. It serves as a museum to show visitors what the early days in the borough were like.
The home was built by Jacob Ehrenhardt, Jr., son of one of the founding fathers of Emmaus. Born in 1760, he was one of the village's 12 Revolutionary War veterans.
He took up the trade of shoemaker, and he and his wife, Susanna, raised their four daughters in the house.
