See the world in a dazzling array of Christmas lights with the Trees of Historic Bethlehem, beautifully adorned by the Bethlehem Garden Club. Dispersed across four historic sites, Trees of Historic Bethlehem will amaze visitors with decorations and ornaments inspired by historic artwork from our collection. Presented in conjunction with our Sketched Out exhibit, each Tree will be paired with a piece of artwork such as a painting, tapestry, or sculpture and accompanied by a Holiday Putz!
Be amazed by beautifully decorated Christmas trees inspired by historic art from our collection like drawings, paintings, sculpture, and tapestries. Each tree will be paired with its very own work of art, its decorations drawing inspiration from the colors, subject matter, and time period of the artwork.
View all of these dazzling trees and vote for your favorite! Enjoy our annual tree display as part of your family's holiday tradition, or start a new tradition this year!
"My sister and I took the tour last Friday and it was absolutely delightful!! The Bethlehem Garden Club's use of portraits, paintings and artifacts as inspiration to decorate the trees was amazing and so artistically done! The restored historic museums are the perfect setting and the tour guides did a wonderful job explaining the history of the Moravian community. We thoroughly enjoyed it...This is a must-see!!" ~ Denise Salvaterra, Dec. 5, 2018
