Moravian Historical Society
Visit the Moravian Historical Society in historic, downtown Nazareth, Pennsylvania, to experience one of the most distinctive colonial-era communities in North America. Explore Moravian contributions to American music culture, including the earliest known violin made in the American colonies and the 1776 Tannenberg organ. Marvel at our exquisite collection of paintings by John Valentine Haidt, one of the first artists in America to portray chiefly religious topics. Admire the Whitefield House and Gray Cottage, the two oldest Moravian structures in North America.
Established in 1857, the Moravian Historical Society is the third oldest in Pennsylvania. The site features permanent and changing exhibitions, and a gift shop featuring books, local souvenirs, and handmade artisan items.
Open daily 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. (except major holidays) for self-guided tours. Guided adult and youth group tours (ten or more guests) are available by appointment.
