In this 128 page book, Steve Friesen tells the story of the Hans Herr House located in an area known as "Conestoga" in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1719 by Mennonites who traveled west from Philadelphia to settle in this area of Pennsylvania. To this day, the house remains an integral part of not only Lancaster County history, but that of the settlement by Mennonites nearly 300 years ago. Includes several black and white photos, illustrations and a few color photos as well.

Modest fashion might come across as a humblebrag: You have to be a pretty stylish, pretty good-looking woman to claim ownership of such radical dowdiness. The style seems especially popular among women in their 20s and 30s - trumping the received wisdom that one should flaunt one’s body before it is marked by the supposed scourges of childbearing or menopause

Sure, this book was designed to explain the origins of the Hans Herr House built near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1719. But it includes historical background about the Mennonites from their beginnings in Switzerland and the German Palatinate through their immigrations to North America in the early 1700s. Aspects of typical daily life are detailed as well, such as building construction techniques, farming, furnishings, foods and cooking procedures, tools, and religious practices. Even though the rooms can be imagined by reading the descriptions and studying the color photos, a floor plan would have helped those readers who haven't yet visited the house. Still, anyone with Mennonite or Pennsylvania German roots should probably read this slim volume someday.
One chapter follows the ownership of the property, which remained in the hands of Herr descendants until 1969, when the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society was able to acquire it. There was plenty of work to do; the structure had been unoccupied for more than a century. Restoration even included matching the existing mortar with a mixture of cow manure and yeast! Through the work of the society and many hours of volunteer labor, the site is now on the National Register and offers tours and educational programs. You can visit it on the web at ...

The photos were great, and the descriptions made the old Swiss Mennonites seem very human. I even found out what they ate and wore. The dating may be wrong. My family documents indicate that the entire group came in 1717. My ancestor, Isaac Kauffman, bought 300 acres very near Mr. Herr in 1717. I assume that he had come with the first group.
