  8. I am a descendant too. I have the 1952 edition book where I was 6 years old.

  9. My late husband is descendant of Adam Spach. I visited Friedburg in 2010. I was trying to locate the Rock House. I was told the historical Rock House had fallen down, and I could not get close to where it was located. I heard by locals that the town of Wachovia or county and others in Friedburg were wanting to restore the Rock House in its original place and build a park there. The problem in doing that had to do with the county lines that ran together in that location, keeping it from being restored. Are there any descendants of the Adam Spach Rock House who live in that area who might know if there are plans to restore the Historical Adam Spach Rock House?

  10. I currently live about 500 feet from the Adam Spach rock house. As of now, it just looks like a bunch of rubble. The WHS has cleared out all the bushes and small trees in the area in order to make a historical park, which is pretty exciting. Currently, there is no official public access point, but there is a way to get there via Friedburg Village. I go walking by it often.

  11. Michael Morris,

    I live about 3 miles north of you and would absolutely love to visit the site. Would it be okay to get in touch with you?
