Schifferstadt
has been designated a
National Historic Landmark

This site possesses national significance in commemorating the history of the United States of America.

Built in 1758 by Elias Brunner, this farmhouse is an exceptional example of blended German and Georgian style architecture. The house illustrates the influence of immigrant traditions on early American building practices. Among its rare Germanic features is what may be the only five-plate stove remaining in its original location in the nation.
