Address: 2052 Lucon Road, Schwenksville, PA
The Landis Homestead stands on the original tract of land deeded to Jacob Landis in 1727. The house, constructed in 1839 remains in substantially original condition. This particular homestead was unique in that it was the site of an industrial-agricultural operation that used stored water to an extensive degree. Numerous springs on the property provided a year round flow of water, enabling the development of an early irrigation system. The Landis Corn Plow and Cultivator, an important agricultural tool in early farming, was developed in the blacksmith shop that remains on the property. Drive by only.
