Climenhaga Homestead

Climenhaga Homestead

In the 1920s, Asa and Anna Climenhaga built their on-campus homestead in part to become better connected to the campus and its students. Asa Climenhaga, our first dean, and his wife, Anna, a Latin teacher, were known for opening their home to countless relatives, students, and guests of the University. It is a fitting tribute to the Climenhagas to preserve this stately homestead as a steady reminder of their Christian hospitality and their service to Messiah University for more than half a century. Today this facility houses beautifully furnished guest rooms, meeting rooms and conference facilities.

  • Four beautifully-appointed guest suites
