The Union Deposit Homestead, built in the 1760's, is located in the quaint Village of Union Deposit, a 3 minute drive to Hershey Park,the Giant center and downtown Hershey.
Our Stone House was one of three original buildings in this historic community. It is nestled on a private park-like setting on the edge of the village with mature trees and a small stream. It is located adjacent to open fields.
At one time the house was known to have hidden stairways and a room to hide from the Indians that raided homesteads in the 1700's. Today it still has many interesting features including the large fireplace that was once the summer kitchen, two porches, a covered patio with a fenced and gated play area.
Enjoy the Home as you relax after a day at Hershey Park or from your tour of South Central Pennsylvania attractions, i.e. Pa Dutch county, Gettysburg Battlefield, numerous golf courses, Zoo America, Hershey Rose Garden, Chocolate World, Capitol attractions, or swimming at the Hershey pool and play area, and many more.

We always admired this home. When it came on the market, we rushed to see it and the love continues to today. We love older homes, the home and setting was so charming it spoke to our desire to part of it's history. These dwellings are masterpieces of the early settlers who used what was available to create beautiful and sustaining buildings. The saying, 'If Walls Could Talk'...can we really imagine all that must have been taken place here.. The best part is location. All the history and close to everything! We proudly welcome you to our home. Come, relax and ENJOY. Sincerely, Diane and Bob
