About Myerstown, PA

On December 24, 1757, 249 acres (1.01 km 2) of land was deeded to Isaac Meier and wife Catherine, who built their house at the Hergelrode site on South College Street. As early as 1763 he began deeding out lots and planned to make a town which he called Tulpehocken Town, after the Tulpehocken Creek, which runs through the borough. Meier was fatally shot by an unknown assassin on July 14, 1770, at the Henry Buch House on 40 West Main Street which was a tavern at that time. After his death the citizens of Tulpehocken Town began to call it Meier's Town after him. The Isaac Meier Homestead was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
