Strasburg Historic District
Built as a pottery factory in 1891 and later used as a depot for the Baltimore and Ohio and Southern Railroads, the Strasburg Museum exemplifies two key industries that drew German immigrants and defined its central role during the Civil War. The museum is also a fine gateway to the Strasburg Historic District, with such important structures as the Sonner House (1757), Spengler’s Mill (1794), Presbyterian Church (ca. 1830), St. Paul’s Lutheran Church (1892), and the First National Bank (ca. 1910).
