Tracing its founding to 1742, Moravian College is recognized as America’s sixth-oldest college. The Hurd Campus is located in the heart of Bethlehem’s colonial historic district, where Moravian settlers constructed buildings of renowned beauty and endurance. Eleven of the College’s buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. And Church Street has been identified as one of the 10 most distinctive historic streets in America, with the College’s Brethren’s House (1748) considered to be one of the best examples of Colonial Germanic architecture in the country. It is here in the heart of the oldest part of Bethlehem that the roots of Moravian College can be traced.
Join us for guided walking tour of the Hurd Campus and historic Church Street where you will be introduced to the many beautiful buildings constructed by the Bethlehem Moravians from 1741-1890.
