Enjoy life in the slow lane at one of the most photographed homes in Lancaster County. Located in Strasburg’s Historical District, this 200 year old home is listed on the National Register of Historical Places and the Lancaster County Historic Sites Register.

Built for a local merchant in 1786, this elegant limestone residence housed the first Chief Burgess of Strasburg and the first Post Office in 1805. From 1839 to 1860, the principal of the Strasburg Academy boarded up to 50 boys attending the school that was erected behind the home.

Architecturally and historically, the Limestone Inn ranks among the most important in all of Lancaster County. Although based on a formal, symmetrically five-bay Georgian house plan with a central hallway, the home has certain Germanic overtones. The pent roof, decorative tumbling between the 2nd floor windows, and a feeling of verticality marks the dwelling as a link between distinctly medieval and purely formal Georgian architecture
