Steeped in history as the birthplace of one of America’s early influencers, David Rittenhouse, this 1707 national historic landmark offers a charming venue for indoor and outdoor events.

Inside the Homestead, you’ll find four inviting rooms, including the cozy downstairs kitchen with a welcoming fireplace adjacent to the main living area complemented by two more rooms on the second floor. For an added touch of nostalgia, an option to stay overnight is also available for an additional fee.

Bakehouse

Starting at $250
Up to 20 guests

Imagine stepping inside this 1753 Bakehouse where our hearth cook, dressed in period attire, is preparing a delicious meal over the crackling flames within the 16 ½-foot hearth. Or go simple and gather your friends, family, or colleagues for an intimate meeting or a small get-together where you can unwind with a glass of wine and savor a selection of fine cheeses. The possibilities are boundless.

Hearth cooking, a traditional method of food preparation, involves cooking directly over an open flame using various utensils and techniques. It harkens back to a time when the hearth was the heart of the home and meals were crafted with care and skill, imparting a unique flavor and nostalgia to the dishes.
