Overview

About the property

Farmhouse, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

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.

About Diane and Bob McNary

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

Diane and Bob McNary purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Wished we'd had more time to spend !

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 stayed for a mini-vacation to experience Hershey but honestly we would have loved longer to enjoy the house and its history. We had a blast speculating on it's past. The kitchen was a family gathering dream ! And the bedrooms and the rest of the house accommodated our family perfectly. Absolutely loved having breakfast on the back patio ! The only draw back, which was no fault of the owner as I didn't inquire before hand, was it wasn't handicapped accessible for our 20 year old son with cerebral palsy. But thanks to his strong backed older brother we got him up and down the steps as needed. We definitely would stay in this home again if traveling back to the area !!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We wish we would have known about you're need for no steps to enter the home...we would have allowed you to park near back entrance. Do to many renovations over the 250 years...there are half steps inside the home..not wheelchair friendly. Some of the doorways are narrow and low. So glad you enjoyed your stay....come back again. Diane and Bob
