Established in 1857, the Moravian Historical Society is the third oldest historical society in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. We share Moravian art, history, architecture, innovation, and culture with the community through events, tours, exhibitions, publications, and more.

The Society is affiliated with the Moravian Archives in Bethlehem, Pa. This affiliation allows both organizations to create a more complete picture of Moravian history and to present that history in new and modern ways.

We are proud to be a Preserve America Stewards Presidential Award winner, a Blue Star Museum, and a partner with National Geographic Magazine's Delaware River geotourisim project.

The Society is housed in the 1740/1743 Whitefield House and the 1740 Gray Cottage (the two oldest Moravian structures in North America)
