About Johann Heinrich Antes

Henry Antes (born in Germany in 1701; died in Fredericktown, Pennsylvania, 20 July 1755) was an early 18th-century settler of Pennsylvania and a leader of the Moravian Church.

The house he designed and built in 1736 was used as the first multicultural school during the colonial period, is now the residence of the Goshenhoppen Historians, Inc.

The Henry Antes House is a historic house located on Colonial Road, in Upper Frederick Township Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. It was designed and built by Henry Antes in 1736. It stands today as an example of Moravian settlement houses, in particular of a German three-room plan house. The house is unusual because so much of its original interior finish, including ceilings and board partition walls, have survived.

The Antes House was declared a National Historic Landmark on April 27, 1992.
