The Brumbaugh Homestead at Raystown Lake
Updated: Aug 7, 2022
The Brumbaugh homestead was originally constructed in 1804 and was home to seven generations of the same family, including Martin Brumbaugh, who would become Governor of Pennsylvania from 1915-1919.
Over the years, several additions were made to the original stone structure.
The Brumbaugh homestead eventually became part of the Raystown Lake property, and the house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
Unfortunately, a series of subsequent fires and decades of neglect have left the historic structure in disarray. Today there is a fence around the home to prevent visitors from entering the property.
