Speedwell Forge B&B

We offer an experience like no other

The Speedwell Forge Bed and Breakfast in Litiz, PA is steeped in the rich history of Lancaster County. Built in 1760, the main house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.

Speedwell Forge has not always been a Lancaster County bed and breakfast. Its story begins in 1734, when Peter Grubb, a mason, literally stumbled upon one of the largest and richest iron deposits ever found in the US. He named the area Cornwall, and he built a bloomery to smelt the ore and produce cast (or “pig”) iron. In 1742, this was replaced by the Cornwall Furnace, which is now a National Historic Landmark and offers regular tours.
