Jacob Reiff Homestead, Lower Salford Township, Pennsylvania
Philadelphia
Jacob Reiff Homestead, Lower Salford Township, Pennsylvania was purchased by the Lower Salford Township in 1966 to be a 73 acres preserve and park. The park provides access to Skippack Creek for fishing and has picnic tables and benches. Jacob Reiff, the original owner of the homestead, served as Tax Collector for the surrounding area of Montgomery County which at the time was Philadelphia County. The house in the photo was built about 1780 and is currently the headquarters and museum of the Lower Salford Historical Society. The property where the present house is located was first owned as far back as 1706. Jacob and wife Sarah Clemens Reiff had 8 children. They bought 141 acres, with plantation and buildings and improvements, from brother-in-law Jacob Clemens in 3/29/1800 who bought it 12/2/1796 from father Gerhardt Clemens (the grandson of the original settler Gerhart Clemens) and mother Catharine Hunsicker Clemens.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
