Located two miles south of Loysburg on the highway leading from Loysburg to Snake Spring valley. The Koontz Church of the Brethren is just across the road from the farm buildings belonging to the Koontz family. In 1933 Jacob Koontz was a minister in the Brethren church and his son, Henry, who owned the farm on which he was born, was also a minister who lived in New Enterprise. He married Mary Guyer and their daughter married Delmar Ritchey. They lived on the farm in 1933. The church and the cemetery are located on the Koontz farm. Beaver Run flows through this farm.
