Olde Homestead’s 18-Hole Golf Course features a restored 1910 farmhouse which is now the Clubhouse, a 1700’s summer kitchen with bake oven, a one-room schoolhouse, and a drive-through corn crib. Olde Homestead’s friendly atmosphere accompanied by these historical features allows visitors to feel as though they’ve come home.
The Schneider Homestead Summer Kitchen
The summer kitchen, located near the 9th tee of the 18-Hole Course, is the last remaining structure of the 1700’s Schneider settlement. The original log house burned down in 1920, followed by the log barn in 1965. In 1910 Nathan H. Snyder, a descendant of the original Schneider settlers, built a new home which is now Olde Homestead’s Clubhouse.
Schneider’s One-Room Schoolhouse
Pennsylvania’s Department of Education acquired land from David Schneider in February 1851 for a new school building. A wood-frame building was constructed and became known as Schneider’s One-Room School, where 1st through 8th grades were taught. The school was then rebuilt between 1880 and 1890 in accordance with state architectural specifications for one-room schoolhouses. Designed to accommodate a maximum of fifty students, the cost of the new brick building was $300. The school was in continuous use from 1852 through 1946 without any electricity or running water. Originally there were two outhouses; one for boys and one for girls. All of the students and the teacher walked to school, and school was never canceled due to snow or ice. Since most of the students were from farm families, the school was closed for two weeks in the fall so the students could help with the harvest. The building, which is located at hole 13 of Olde Homestead’s 18-Hole Course, was restored to its original state in 1999.
