Revolutionary War Patriot Homes

I’ve blogged about this before, but just have to say — I keep getting more patriot homes in PA every week.  I try to record all the homes by county and do further research to be sure that the home is one that was built and/or lived in by a patriot.

I will be speaking to the Regents’ Club of Central Pennsylvania soon about the homes in this region and to promote the Harrisburg Chapter book “Revolutionary War Patriot Historic Houses in Dauphin County Pennsylvania”.  It is such a beautiful book and well worth the price, especially if you are interested in local history.  The ladies did a wonderful job of identifying and documenting 60 homes in their book.

I started collecting homes from other counties while I was the NSDAR State Chairman for Historic Preservation.  I have located, with the help of daughters around Pennsylvania, 41 additional homes.  If you find any that you would like to preserve with the NSDAR, feel free to email me at my website with information about where the home is located and who is the patriot associated with the home, I will do the rest of the work.  A photo of the property would be appreciated.

Happy Hunting
