Inscription. This smokehouse was removed from the site of the "Heine" Weber homestead in the historic Weaverland Valley. The house and barn on the Weber homestead were built in the early 1760s, and this building appears to be of the same period.

The roof was removed, the stone walls were dismantled, and the materials were moved to this site in the summer of 1980. It was reconstructed of the same stones in the same size and design as the original structure, and the roof was again replaced.

The bakeoven immediately south of the smokehouse was also constructed of materials taken from the Weber homestead. The stones, timbers, and tile roof were taken from the "Heine" Weber House. These structures have been preserved here as a memorial to the Weber/Weaver families, whose ancestor Johann Anton Weber settled here in the Pequea Valley in 1711 and whose sons - Henry, Jacob, and George - moved to what is now known as the Weaverland Valley.
 
Erected 1981 by The Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society.
