Built in 1737 in the Oley Valley, and moved to the Danial Boone Homestead in 1968, the Bertolet House is an excellent example of Pennsylvania German log architecture in the early frontier period in Berks County. Similar to many German homes, the centrally located fire place opens into the kitchen on one side and the parlor on the other. An additional room aside the parlor served as a bedroom. The influence of Medieval architecture in European can still be seen in the steeply pitched roof, flared eaves and casement windows, so typical of dwellings on the Continent.
