Rittenhouse
The Mennonites arrived in Germantown October 6, 1683. William Rittenhouse was chosen their first minister in 1686. In 1689 he drew this Number 10 lot, and on it in 1691 he and his fellow members built the "Little Log Church". In 1702 he donated part of lot, and later the present church lot and burial ground. He was the first paper maker in America. Died in 1708 aged 64 years. Erected by the Pennsylvania Historical Commission and the Rittenhouse Memorial Committee.
