Welcome!

We began in 1997. A small group of concerned Nicholas descendants decided they did not want to see the house demolished.

Soon, the number of descendants & non-descendants of Nicholas began to grow and the house was restored in 2003. We began receiving requests for family reunions and other groups to use our property. We determined that we needed to add a caretaker’s suite, public restrooms and a climate-controlled area for Stoltzfus family artifacts. Fundraising efforts were begun to raise funds for the barn.

The barn exterior was constructed in 2011, the interior has been completed. Includes a caretakers apartment downstairs, (currently occupied by Elam & Esther Stoltzfus, caretakers) and small guest apartment upstairs.

Our mission is to tell the Stoltzfus story.


While the annual auction, rentals, and other events provide important funding for the property, donations are needed to make ends meet.
Please consider donating or let us know how you can help.

We Are Grateful

 

In 2006 members of the Preservation Committee met with Michael Leader, President and CEO of Country Meadows. He assured the Committee he supports future development based on the Committees's goals. Preservation is assured through an agreement with Country Meadows.
