The restaurant now known simply as Deitsch Eck (Dutch Corner) has a long history and relationship with hex signs found all over Pennsylvania’s Americana Region. The original Washington Hotel from the 1700s was purchase in the late 1930s by a hex sign painter. After his death the property passed to the PA Dutch Folk Culture Society, who had no intention of running the business. Steve Stetzler, a former employee and graduate of Penn State’s Hotel Management program, was asked to manage the business and, refusing to let the icon die, bought the restaurant and has continued to serve authentic PA Dutch food to this day. Stop by for some chicken pot pie, corn pie, pig stomach, chicken and waffles, pork and sauerkraut, potato filling, ham and string beans, and, of course, shoo fly pie.
