Steeple of Central Church, 1806

Founded by Count Nicolaus Ludwig von Zinsendorf in 1740, Bethlehem was an early Moravian religious community following the Hussitic fundamentalist faith. His flock built a religious settlement- Bethlehem- whose construction betrays a few characteristics of central european building. By the turn of the 19th century the architecture had begun to converge with the mainstream middle-Atlantic Georgian style. Bethlehem is the largest German-style historic site in the states.
