TravelAddicts.net Travel Blog: The Remarkable Moravian History of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
In southeastern Pennsylvania, you get used to the idea of being surrounded by history. After all, Philadelphia was the birthplace of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, and it was the first capital of the United States. The legendary Valley Forge National Historical Park is just a few minutes’ drive, and for an hour in any direction, almost everywhere you go was once part of a Revolutionary War battlefield. Not far away is a place with another fascinating (but lesser known) story to tell—the historic Moravian museum and sites of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
