H MuhlenbergThe Henry Muhlenberg House
at 201 W. Main Street in Trappe, was purchased by the society in 1989 and has been restored to the period of 1776 when Henry Melchior Muhlenberg   resided there. Muhlenberg Journal has provided  a wealth of information. Of particular interest are  the roles of his sons, Peter and Frederick, during the Revolutionary War and establishment of the   United States.

The exterior renovation was completed in 1995. After he total restoration of the interior the house was dedicated in August, 1998. The task of appointing the Muhlenberg House with appropriate furniture is ongoing, and many pieces have been donated. In 2000, the house was included in the National Register of Historic Places after years of community participation and support in purchasing and preserving this site at a cost of over a million dollars.
