Heller Homestead Park
Heller Homestead Park is a park which includes almost 14 acres of open space dedicated to Lower Saucon Township as part of an agreement with developer K. Hovnanian in 1988, in conjunction with the construction of the nearby Society Hill community. The park includes an 11.7 acre parcel of land and the 2.2 acre lot on which the historic Heller Homestead is located. Part of the park is bordered by the scenic Saucon Creek and features an interpretive nature trail, benches and picnic tables.
The ruins of an eighteenth-century stone barn, a foursquare herb garden, a Widow's House and the Heller Homestead (listed on the National Historic Register of Places in 2010) are permanently preserved within the park. The Heller Homestead features period-furnished rooms, a gift shop and the headquarters of the not-for-profit Saucon Valley Conservancy. Special events, such as historic re-enactments, are held in the park throughout the year.
