Nazareth, PA – The Moravian Historical Society is pleased to announce the second annual “Free Summer Sundays” program to be held every Sunday, July 5th 2015 – August 30th 2015.
Families and individuals will enjoy free admission to the 1740-1743 Whitefield House museum in beautiful, downtown Nazareth from 1 pm – 4 pm each select Sunday. Experience the story of the Moravians (the town founders of Nazareth and Bethlehem). Guests will come face-to-face with one of the oldest and most exquisite collections of local objects including the oldest known American made violin in the country, eight important John Valentine Haidt oil paintings, several examples of early furniture and other household objects all the while enjoying the oldest Moravian buildings in North America.
Children (and those young at heart) will enjoy playing typical colonial games such as Jacob’s Ladder, Graces, Ball and Cups outside on the property. Crafts will include coloring Frakturs, a regional folk art form.
Megan van Ravenswaay, Whitefield House Site Director stated “We are so excited to offer free museum admission on Sundays to the entire community this summer. We know families will enjoy the tours of the museum and especially enjoy playing games on our beautiful property.”
