John Hochstetler 'Little House"

The Hochstetler 'little house' June 22, 2019. This is a 2019 picture of L. Dietle (me) and granddaughter standing in front of the relocated 1800 Hochstetler "Little House" at the Penn Alps facility in Maryland. Mr. Dietle and his granddaughter are descendants of John Hochstetler of Somerset County, Pennsylvania. I had long thought the "Little House" was completely destroyed by a tornado on June 2, 1998. The September 1998 issue of the newsletter of the Jacob Hochstetler family association has a photo of the wrecked house, which was roofless, blown off its foundation, and badly twisted. It wasn't until I visited Penn Alps for the first time in 2019 that I learned the wreckage had been used to create this reconstruction.

Somewhere I have a photo of the original foundation of this house that I took about a month and a half after the tornado on July 18, 1998.
