Reiber House Development

In 2010, LCSWMA completed renovations to the Rieber House, a historic farmhouse located on Frey Farm Landfill site. The Rieber House, first constructed in 1772, possesses both architectural and historical meaning in Lancaster County, as well as played a significant role in the founding of the United Brethren Church in Pennsylvania. With over $350,000 invested in the renovation, the Rieber House is now used as a welcome center for visitors, as well as a meeting space for public gatherings and as an architectural exhibit to carry on the Rieber Family story.
