Death and Dying Cemetery Tour

Take a walk - if you dare - on our historic cemetery tour! Your certified, costumed guide will meet you inside the oldest building in Bethlehem, the 1741 Gemeinhaus, to learn about the early Moravians, their early medical care and communal way of life. After exploring the building and witnessing a period dead tray, escape out doors to hear the story of the Corpse House, the Old Chapel, and early death and funeral practices in our city. End your tour at the oldest cemetery in the city to learn about important early Moravian citizens.
