Visit the Shelter House
The Shelter House welcomes visitors interested in Colonial history. If you’re in the area or touring other historic sites, we’d love to see you.
What You’ll See
The Shelter House is a remarkably preserved 18th Century dwelling. You’ll see period-accurate construction, craftsmanship, furnishings and household objects. Tours are provided by our on-site curator, who has had the unique experience of living in this piece of Colonial history for more than 40 years. A visit to the Shelter House is a true trip back in time, close to home.
I can’t visit. Can I still get involved?
Absolutely. Joining the Shelter House Society for as little as $10 ensures we can preserve this gem for future generations. You’ll receive numerous benefits in exchange for your tax-deductible contribution, including a subscription to The Hearthstone, Emmaus’ only print publication dedicated to local history.
