The first permanent home for the Rittenhouse family (and birthplace of David Rittenhouse), the 1707 Rittenhouse Homestead is located across the Paper Mill Run from the site of the ca. 1702 mill.  This structure housed eight generations of the Rittenhouse family. Originally three rooms, The Homestead was expanded to nearly double its size. At the same time, the Bake House was built ca. 1725. With its impressive 16½ foot hearth, the Bake House fed generations of Rittenhouse family and mill workers.

 

Today the 1707 Rittenhouse Homestead serves as the focal point for our public tours and has been carefully restored to look as it did in the 18th century.  The ca. 1725 Bake House has been restored and boasts a working beehive oven
