The Moravian Historical Society

Your Place to Discover History

The Moravian Historical Society celebrates the rich culture of the Moravians. The historic site includes the 1740-1743 Whitefield House and the 1740 Gray Cottage, the oldest Moravian structure in North America. Founded in 1857, MHS is recognized widely for its significant museum collection. MHS shares the fascinating history of the Moravians and their contributions to early American history through educational programs, guided tours, exhibits, and public events.  

Located in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, ​the Moravian Historical Society is the third oldest historical society in Pennsylvania. The museum offers permanent and special exhibitions and a museum store that features gifts, books, and handmade artisan items.
