In 1784 Peter Sturgis built a lovely stone house at 219 East Main Street, Lititz. In 1861, Julius Sturgis began baking pretzels at the house. The Sturgis Pretzel House, now a Lititz landmark, is the oldest commercial pretzel bakery in the United States.
Lititz Improvement, Inc. has purchased the Pretzel House for renovation. Managed by Dennis Beck, Lititz Improvement is a real estate investment group made up of civic-minded local investors who have purchased and renovated several Lititz buildings in the past.
Modern rest facilities are planned so that the Pretzel House can accommodate bus tours. Lititz Improvement, Inc. plans to reopen the Pretzel house for business as an operating museum in the near future. The Sturgis Pretzel House will once again continue to be, along with the Wilbur Chocolate Factory, one of the many historic attractions that bring visitors to Lititz every year from all over the eastern states.
