Nazareth, PA – The Moravian Historical Society is pleased to announce a new partnership with Just Born Quality Confections: free admission to the 1740/1743 Whitefield House starting September 1st through the end of 2015.

Just Born Quality Confection’s sweet history and strong commitment to support community, art, history and cultural education is a natural match with the Moravian Historical Society. The Society, the third oldest in Pennsylvania, presents the art, history, and culture of Bethlehem’s town founders: the Moravians. They do so through exciting museum exhibitions, walking tours, and programs created for the entire family.

The public is warmly invited to bring their families for free to explore the Society’s museum located inside the 1740/1743 Whitefield House, one of the oldest Moravian buildings in North America. The museum and gift shop are open daily, 1 – 4pm.

The Society’s Director, Megan van Ravenswaay stated: “Over the years, Just Born has proved to be a pillar of support for the Moravian Historical Society. They regularly volunteer with us, attend our events, and they even donate candy for our other volunteers to enjoy! This new partnership to provide free public museum admission is not only a gift to the Society, but also the Lehigh Valley. We know hundreds of guests will greatly enjoy this offer.”

Carol Saeger, Just Born Quality Confection’s Corporate Affairs Leader stated: “Our philanthropic program recognizes that a strong cultural life is important and essential to the overall quality of life in the Lehigh Valley.  This is why we support programs and events to make the arts more accessible to a wider audience.”

One of the oldest historical societies in Pennsylvania, the Moravian Historical Society is a not-for-profit organization that shares over 500 years of fascinating Moravian contributions to worldwide culture through educational programs for students, guided tours, museum exhibits, and public activities.
