In 1993, the "Heimatverein für das Drolshagener Land" acquired the "Gasthof Bone" and fundamentally restored the building in the following years. In October 1995 the house could be inaugurated as "Heimathaus" thanks to the North Rhine-Westphalia Foundation, state and municipal grants, generous donations from Drolshagen companies and a lot of own work. The basement contains the well hall and vaulted cellar, which offer a unique atmosphere with their fieldstone masonry.

On the first floor, the former inn from the fifties has been renovated. In addition, a cozy room with an old stove, coffered ceiling and wall paneling was created adjacent. On the same level is the "Buchstube Heinrich Bone" as a Catholic public library. The upper floor houses the janitor's apartment, library and photo archive, books, documents and pictures on regional history. The attic was converted into a modern lecture hall in 2001/02. The Heimathaus is located in the heart of Drolshagen.

When a total fire destroyed everything within the former city wall in May 1838, the subsequent reconstruction no longer followed the previous medieval alley network, but chose a rectangular ground plan for the new streets. The married couple Matthäus and Elisabeth Bone built their new house in Annostraße. It served as the "Gasthof Bone" from 1839 to 1993. The farm was operated until 1968.

It is the parents' house of the pedagogue Heinrich Bone (+ 1893), who became known as a renewer of Catholic hymnody in the 19th century, as a schoolbook author ("Deutsches Lesebuch") and as a cultural politician. The "Heinrich Bone Book House" preserves the memory of him with its name.

Today, the Heimathaus is a cultural and event center with many functions. It enables the local history society to organize exhibitions and a rich educational program. The city of Drolshagen, parliamentary groups, associations and committees use it for conferences and meetings. Family celebrations take place throughout the year and, with a variable range of rooms, provide a valued setting for private parties.
