Why the Buch Suite?

The Buch Suite is named after Scott’s great, great grandfather Daniel Buch, who married Lizzie Metzler in the 1880s. They moved onto the farm in the 1890s. He was a financial wizard and financially backed the Denver and Ephrata Telephone and Telegraph Company when it was founded. He also owned multiple farms and functioned as the treasurer for Metzler’s Mennonite Church just up the road. He lived in the Homestead until 1945, when he passed the farm to his bachelor sons, Jacob and Elmer Metzler Buch. They ran the Homestead until 1976.

Scott and Kristen Hertzog have been enjoying the company of guests from around the world who come and visit the Hertzog Homestead Bed and Breakfast since 2003. Scott’s heritage on this farm dates back to the days when the first Mennonites settled the area in the mid-1700s. Scott’s talents include genealogical research on the people and the history of the Hertzog Homestead. Many of the antiques that decorate the bed and breakfast have come down through generations of Scott’s family. His new book My First 250 Years: The Story of the Hertzog Homestead is now available in our Online Boutique. Through stories, humor, and historical research, Scott relives the ways of years gone by and considers the family’s future legacy. Scott is the 8th generation descendant of an unbroken family bloodline to live on the Hertzog Homestead. The Mennonite church, the one room school house, and road by the homestead also bear the name of his original ancestor Jacob Metzler. Born and raised in Edison, New Jersey, Kristen brings a unique and fresh perspective into the Mennonite culture. Kristen was an Amish tour guide and has worked various marketing positions in the Pennsylvania Dutch tourism industry including Sight and Sound Theatres and Plain and Fancy Farms. She was awarded the Women of Influence 2017 Award by the Cental Pennsylvania Business Journal for her leadership and innovation at Hertzog Homestead. Scott, Kristen, and the Hertzog Homestead Team welcome you to their home and look forward to meeting new friends and extending their hospitality!
