Moravian History

I was not aware until this visit to Lancaster how significant the Moravians were to this area. Apparently at one time only Moravians could live in Lititz.

Having learned about the history of the Moravian community and about the various buildings that are part of the church complex, looking in at them --and going into the church-- was very interesting. It is an idyllic spot that is still being used, cared for and loved.

Not only a simple and lovely church, the surrounding grounds are worth a walk around. There are informative signs and nice pathways. Navigate to the Historical Foundation for wonderful information on these buildings and the history of the community.

This was the title of a brochure I picked up in the Moravian Mission Gift Shop. I had never heard of the Moravian Church and was amazed to learn it had been in existence since 1457! The Church Square is beautiful and the Archives and Museum was fascinating! I would love to attend a Christmas Vigil Love Feast Service and... More

The Moravian Church is the reason that Lititz exists as it does. Look it up! My great grandfather assisted in the building of the Sunday School building and a grand piece of furniture is dedicated to him. This complex is absolutely breathtaking and is so full of history! The Moravians have special rituals, not to be missed, such as the... More

The Moravia Church dates back to the dawn of Lititz. The local Founding Fathers were all Moravians. The architecture of the old church is quite lovely. If you love history and the quaint feel of a small town you should visit.

We walked the entire area of the Moravian Church Square and the Linden Hall girls school campus. Wow, what a wonderful property. Very large property and lots to see. We did get to see the... More

I love history. We happened upon the Moravian Church Square and Linden Hall, the oldest girls prep school in the U.S. by accident during a recent day trip to Lititz PA. We found out that the Moravian church split from the Catholic Church 100 years before Luther's Reformation! We looked through the little gift shop which had lots of cute... More

We lucked out. The maintenance man, Matt, saw us walking the yard and offered to open the church to let us in. We ended up with our own little personalized tour of the church. Gorgeous in its simplicity in. Even saw the original kitchen in the basement. A highlight of our trip to Lititz.
