The Little Crick

This is the "little crick" at the Herbein Farm, flowing southeast on its way to the Schuylkill River. This farm was later purchased by James' son Adam Rickenbach. Adam's daughter Ellen and her husband Lincoln Reber owned the farm until quite recently.


Farther downstream, the creek passes the Jacob Rickenbach stone house (1817), and then behind the house built by Jacob's great-grandson Curtin (shown in the photo on the left) before crossing under the canal and entering the Schuylkill River.
