The Moravian Historical Society is pleased to announce a brand new series called Whitefield After Dark and the return of the popular guided walking tours of historic downtown Nazareth.
Walking tours will depart on the 2nd Saturday of each month from March through December. Tours will leave from the 1740/1743 Whitefield House at 3pm.
Members of the public are invited to enjoy an exciting stroll through beautiful, historic Nazareth with a costumed tour guide. Experience the fascinating story about the founding of Nazareth by learning about the Moravians. This walking tour features an overview of the early colonial Moravian lifestyle, a visit to the oldest Moravian buildings in North America, and stops at important community buildings.
Members are free. For non-members, $7 for adults and $5 for children.
The Whitefield After Dark series will take place on the 4th Friday of every month beginning in March at 6pm in the 1740/1743 Whitefield House.
Whitefield After Dark provides visitors an opportunity to experience Moravian history after closing time through lectures, performances, screenings, family programs and more. Our first program on March 27th will feature student presentations from Muhlenberg College’s Anthropology Department. They will share details about the objects they found in their archaeological dig near the 1740/1743 Whitefield House in fall 2014.
