The Society is restoring the Henry Antes House, located in the township of Upper Frederick, Pennsylvania, as a Historic House Museum. The house is being preserved and restored to the period of Antes' lifetime as a living history museum. Designed and built by Henry Antes in 1736, this massive stone building is an excellent example of Germanic settlement houses. The Henry Antes House was designated a National Historic Landmark on April 27, 1992. It has the unusual distinction of recognition in two categories; as an important building type and for its association with Henry Antes, one of the most important, yet unrecognized men of the 18th century.
