Award-winning Manchester Township Historical Property Review: ‘This stately house was the home of Dr. Adam Eisenhart’

This is the 1800s home of Dr. Adam Eisenhart, now part of the Stillmeadow Church of the Nazarene’s campus in Manchester Township, Pa. It’s among scores of properties on the Manchester Township Historical Society’s Historical Property Review. A digital file on the building lists the property of high historical value. ‘According to census data and genealogy research, the 1860 owner was Dr. Adam Eisenhart, 1811-1872. His wife was Leah Ferry (or Ferree), 1820-1882,’ the property review states. The historical society’s review consists of a mapped, searchable database of such historical structures.

These four photographs tell a piece of Paul Miller’s story, really a Christmas story bearing Christmas themes of hope in Jesus, goodwill, community and, yes, the miraculous.
