Living History in Trappe

Our town is home to numerous historical sites. How many have you visited?

  • Augustus Lutheran Church, completed in 1743, is not only one of Trappe’s oldest buildings but also as a testament to resilience and faith, having been restored by Muhlenberg’s grandson after a devastating storm in 1860. Today, it holds the distinction of being the oldest Lutheran church in the United States that has remained unaltered and continuously served its original congregation, earning it National Historic Landmark status.
  • Directly across from this historic church lies a building that, around 1830, served as the US Post Office until 1929, showcasing Trappe’s role in early American communication and commerce. Now a private residence, this building echoes the town’s evolving landscape from a bustling postal hub to a serene residential area.
  • Trappe’s commitment to preserving its history is further demonstrated by the Henry Melchior Muhlenberg House, now a meticulously restored museum operated by the Historical Society of Trappe, Collegeville, Perkiomen Valley. This site, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, invites visitors to step back in time and explore the legacy of a family that played a pivotal role in the town’s development.
  • Another gem in Trappe’s historical crown is The Speaker’s House, once the home of Frederick Muhlenberg. Open to the public, this site offers a glimpse into the life of another significant figure in Trappe’s and America’s story.


Together, these landmarks weave a narrative of Trappe’s historical significance, from its early settlement days to its role in American history, culture, and religious life. Visitors and residents alike are invited to explore and appreciate the rich heritage that Trappe proudly preserves.
