Bethlehem’s Moravian Church settlement one step closer to World Heritage Site status

Years in the making, the U.S. government has officially submitted a nomination for the city's historic Moravian Church settlement to be designated a World Heritage Site.

The application by the U.S. Department of the Interior is a first in that it is a multi-national one.

It encompasses an effort by historians to include Bethlehem with the town of Herrnhut, Germany, and the village of Gracehill, Northern Ireland — and have them join Christiansfeld, Denmark, which was designated a World Heritage site in 2015.
