Very interesting. I have lived in Catasauqua all my life, and it's really cool to have a piece of American History in my backyard. The Christmas tour was short, due to the fact they didn't have the second floor open, but they gave a history of the house, about who lived there when and other stuff like that. They also gave a history of the lifestyle in the late 1700s. So if you are a Revolutionary War buff, or just a history buff in general, this would be a cool place to visit.

Great historic site in the Lehigh Valley. It's a little bit off the beaten path and open seasonly so make sure you contact before hand to see if they will be open.

I believe the other reviews go into the history of the site so I won't go into detail. I visited during a public program, Oktoberfest. The house was open for tours and there was food and vendors demonstrating historic crafts. Small site with dedicated volunteers. It's a nice tour and interesting programs for families and history lovers alike.

Considering how old this home is, it is amazing to visit and see how life was like back in the day. George Taylor was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and had a home located here in Catasauqua. It is a great place to visit on a weekend (please check for when it is open to the public) and a nice history lesson for kids.

George Taylor, is probably most prominently known as a signer of the Declaration of Independence, representing Pennsylvania. He was also an ironmaster at Durham Furnace (in what is now Bucks County), clerk at Warwick Iron Furnace and Coventry in Chester County (where he eventually become manager of this 1796-acre plantation. He practiced law, was appointed an early Justice of the Peace and a representative to the Pennsylvania Provincial Assembly from Northampton County. He was also a member of the Continental Congress, and for a short time before his death in 1781, sat on the 12 member Supreme Executive Council of Pennsylvania formed to govern after the separation from England patriot during the Revolutionary War. The house tells his story and exhibits how he lived. The house is also a National Historic Landmark.
