The Ressler lady lived on the corner of Rothsville Rd and Middle Creek Rd. It was a white cement block house. A Mennonite or Amish family lives there now, house has been fixed up. I remember a barn on Middle creek rd, it may have been torn down and replaced with another. Dennis

Penn Pilot has aerial photography of all of Pa, from 1940, 1960, & 1970, ish. Also, I have aerial pics of the location cropped & enhanced, & historical USGS topos, which I'll post later. There's also a discussion of this facility in the "Remember When In Lititz" facebook group.
One warning about Penn Pilot, it's very easy to get lost there, comparing "then" photos to current satellite imagery, make sure ya got coffee, lol.

ja5838, this may be what you are looking for. The white house is the Ressler house. Barn to the right. Barn was torn down. Picture was from about 1969. Dennis
