The Hessian House, Northampton County, PA

 

The Hessian House, Northampton County, PA
This fieldstone house, located in Lower Saucon Township, Northampton County, Pennsylvania, was lived in by Johanne Frietrich and Anna Maria (Godhard) Frutschi and their family in the mid-1700s, during the Revolutionary War. It was used by the British to house Hessian mercenaries. The corner stones were formerly ships' ballast. Each window is a different size, the frames fixed with dowling. It is adjacent to County Line Road on the southern border of the county. Ed L. Starling stands in front.
