Lehigh Valley Passport to History Month

In participation with Lehigh Valley Passport to History Month, Moravian Historical Society will offer free admission, guided museum tours, kids activities, an antique book sale, and programs for explorers of all ages.

 

Visitors can learn about the significant contributions Moravians made to music, art, education and culture in early America on a guided tour of the 1740–1743 Whitefield House Museum. Explore archival documents and historic maps detailing the perspectives of surveyors, European settlers and Indigenous people in our special exhibit “Charting the Unknown: Early Moravian Maps.”

 

Children can try their hand at colonial chores and help build a miniature replica of a colonial town. Adults will enjoy browsing a large collection of antique books offered for sale.

Moravian Historical Society is a proud member of Lehigh Valley Passport to History.

 

Lehigh Valley Passport to History is a partnership of historic sites and resources in and around Pennsylvania’s Lehigh and Northampton counties. Let our group connect you with historical activities, events, tours, and exhibitions throughout the Valley.

From museums to research archives to little-known architectural gems off the beaten path, we invite you to use this website to explore the rich heritage that is right around the corner.

Each year, we host our annual Passport to History Month -  a celebration of the sites, stories, and community that bring Lehigh Valley history to life. Once per year, local historic and cultural sites open their doors with free admission, tours, activities, and programs for explorers of all ages.

 

We invite you to visit lvhistory.org to browse the events.
