1810 Goundie House


The home of one of Bethlehem’s early brewers, John Sebastian Goundie, stands on Main Street in downtown Historic Bethlehem. This handsome, Federal-style brick house has been restored and is the setting for changing exhibitions reflecting Bethlehem’s fascinating history.

It’s a story of beer, women, and bribes—learn about the history of brewing in Bethlehem through “Bethlehem Brewed & Distilled, a semi-permanent exhibition.” From the stories of early and modern breweries in Bethlehem to Bethlehem’s secret beer caves, this exhibit takes you through the brewing process—from grain to glass.

Hours / Museum Pass: Monday & Tuesday, by appointment only. Friday - Sunday, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Purchase your Museum Pass at the Historic Bethlehem Visitors Center.

Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites operates this area. Please check their website for updates and more information on safety practices.
