The Coplay Creek runs through this 31 acre property, which was once part of a 400 acre farm. The centerpiece of the property is the stone farmhouse, built in 1756. A spring house and 19th century barn are also on the property. The farmhouse is an authentic Pennsylvania German farmhouse and offers an example of Lehigh County agricultural history. The Troxell-Steckel house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
The site is a great place to picnic as the early settlers did.
The Lehigh County Historical Society operates the Farm Museum. It is open for tours on Saturday and Sunday afternoon from May through September. A Pennsylvania Dutch Christmas fest is held in December. Call 610-435-9601 for hours and information.
