Free Museum Days: Historic Rittenhouse Town

Tour the 1707 Homestead, the first permanent home for the Rittenhouse family and the birthplace of David Rittenhouse. The structure housed eight generations of the Rittenhouse family. Originally three rooms, Nicholas Rittenhouse (second generation of the Rittenhouse family) expanded the home to nearly double its size. At the same time, the Bake House was built ca. 1753. With its impressive 16½ foot hearth, the Bake House fed generations of Rittenhouse family and mill workers.
