In 1993 the local association of Drolshagen acquired the "Bone inn" and fundamentally restored the building in the following years. In October 1995 the house was inaugurated as a heritage home, with the helf of the North Rhine-Westphalia Foundation, the government and city grants, generous donations from Drolshagen companies and a lot of personal contributions. The basement contains the fountain hall and vaulted cellar, which offer a unique atmosphere with their field stone masonry.

The former restaurant from the 1950s on the ground floor has been renovated. In addition, a cozy room with an old stove, coffered ceiling and wall paneling was created. The “Bookstore Heinrich Bone” is located on the same level as a Catholic public library. The upper floor houses the caretaker's apartment, a library and a photo archive, books, documents and pictures on regional history. The top floor was converted into a modern lecture hall in the years 2001/02. The heritage house is located in the central area of Drolshagen.

It is the parents' house of the educator Heinrich Bone (+ 1893), who became known as the innovator of the Catholic hymn in the 19th century, as a textbook author (“German reading book”) and as a cultural politician. The “Book Room Heinrich Bone” keeps the memory of him with its name.

Today, the heritage house is a cultural and event house with a variety of tasks. It enables 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 their variable space, offer an appreciated setting for private celebrations.
