The Michael and Magdealena Bixler Farmstead, also known as John Rudy County Park, is a historic property located at East Manchester Township, Pennsylvania, York County, Pennsylvania. It includes seven stone and frame buildings dating from about 1799 to about 1910. They are a Georgian-style house, Sweitzer barn (1811), a summer kitchen, corn barn, hog barn, tobacco barn, and milk house. The house was built about 1799, and is a 2 1/2-story, stone dwelling on a limestone foundation. It has a slate covered gable roof. Also on the property is a hand-dug well dating to about 1799 or earlier, the foundations of a house dated to about 1737, and a smokehouse. The property was donated to York County in 1973, and is operated as a county park.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.[1]
