Raberts Corner

Raberts Corner

The Raberts Corner Hotel, now a private residence, stands at the intersection of Gun Club (originally Wertman Road) and Spring House roads in the heart of several Wertman farms. The original George Phillip Wertman home and farm is believed to be located on what is now Gun Club property. Raberts Corner dates from 1878, formerly Oswaldsville (1860-1878) and is in New Tripoli, Lynn Township, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. A Wertman home is located across the corner from the hotel.

Wertman Barn

Wertman Barn

East of Raberts Corner and about a mile west of Route 309 is the newly restored William J. S. Wertman barn, which was built in 1916. The barn is now part of Carl Wertman's well maintained farm.

Carl Wertman's Home

Carl Wertman's Home.

Carl Wertman has turned his home into almost a museum. His excellent restorations of the family surrey, sleigh and other collectibles fill his home. We met Carl while stopping to take a picture of his Wertman Barn. He was having a picnic on his lawn across from the barn and he invited our caravan for a cold drink where we shared family information and pictures.
