Henry Antes House

Henry Antes House

This pre-1760s massive stone home is a classic example of early Germanic settlement in the Mid-Atlantic American colonies. The Antes home served often as an evangelical and political meeting place. Antes was responsible for the construction of many of the buildings of the time and is considered one of the most important religious/political leaders of the time, specifically because he preached tolerance and understanding.
