The Conrad Weiser Homestead is located in Womelsdorf, Berks County, Pennsylvania. It is a state historic site that sheds light on the life of a German immigrant, Conrad Weiser. Conrad Weiser was an Indian Interpreter and helped to create the policies in Pennsylvania regarding Indians. He serves as a major contributor to the development of Pennsylvania during the colonial times.
The homestead of Conrad Weiser is located upon 26 acres of land along with the six other buildings on the property. The land also includes a gazebo, monuments, picnic areas, and the Weiser Family Cemetery. The Conrad Weiser House is furnished to the 18th century time period in which Conrad and his wife Anna lived there. The house also has a gallery exhibit of their life and the farm at the time of their residence.
