Enjoy a guided tour of the 1740–1743 Whitefield House Museum and learn about the significant contributions Moravians made to music, art, education and culture in early America. Our museum collection features an outstanding collection of objects connected to the establishment of the 18th-century Pennsylvania settlements of Nazareth and Bethlehem. Highlights include the first known piano made in America, oil paintings by John Valentine Haidt (1700–1780), the earliest-known violin made in the American Colonies, and a rare 18th-century rifle made by Andreas Albrecht at the Moravian settlement of Christian's Spring. The Whitefield House is located on the historic Ephrata Tract—the oldest Moravian site in North America.
