Saucon Valley Conservancy volunteers operate the Art Gallery and Gift & Consignment Shop at the Heller Homestead. The proceeds benefit the Saucon Valley Conservancy, an all volunteer not-for-profit 501 (c) 3 corporation, whose mission is to preserve the historic and natural environment of the Saucon Valley as an educational and recreational resource for area citizens and visitors. The Homestead is part of Heller Homestead Park owned by Lower Saucon Township and leased by the Saucon Valley Conservancy.

Directions: The Heller Homestead is located just off the popular Saucon Rail Trail at 1890 - 92 Friedensville Road, (Water Street), in Lower Saucon Township, Northampton County, Pennsylvania. It is approximately one half mile west of Route 412 and Water Street in Hellertown.  Turn west on Water Street, which becomes Friedensville Road in Lower Saucon Township. Go across the Water Street Bridge.  The Heller Homestead is on the left adjacent to the Saucon Creek and opposite Creek Road.  Parking is available on site and at the nearby Water Street Park.

Founded January 7, 1993, the Saucon Valley Conservancy, Inc. is dedicated to work in partnership with government
bodies, community organizations, business groups and concerned citizens. The mission of the Saucon Valley Conservancy is to preserve the historic and natural environment of the Saucon Valley as an educational and recreational resource for area citizens and visitors. The major stewardship of the Conservancy is the Michael Heller Homestead and the Saucon Creek corridor.

The 2.2 acre Heller Homestead (Michael & Margaret Heller House) is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is locally significant under National Register Criterion C
for architecture. The Period of Significance is c. 1751 to 1935, when the earlier Colonial and Federal style farmhouse was renovated to reflect the popular Colonial Revival style. The architecture of the House demonstrates the distinctive design characteristics of the class of pre-existing farmhouses in the Saucon Valley that were remodeled using Colonial Revival designs in the early 20th century.  These changes occurred during a time in which property owners, architects, and builders were influenced by both historic antecedents and the availability of catalog designs and woodwork. It is part of the 15-acre Heller Homestead Park owned by Lower Saucon Township and leased by Saucon Valley Conservancy.
