Favorite thing: The Brothers’ House played a role in the American Revolution. George Washington ordered it used as a military hospital between 1777-78. Some 1,000 soldiers were nursed here, about half of whom died and were buried nearby

Favorite thing: For about a hundred years, Moravian church members were the only people permitted to live in the town. A Brothers’ House and Sisters’ House were erected for the unmarried men and women, although they did not live communally. It was not until 1855 that non-Moravians were allowed to own their own houses.

Favorite thing: Missionary work was integral to the faith, and preachers were sent from the Moravian community in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. A local resident, John Klein, was moved by hearing Zinzendorf’s preaching and, in the year 1755, Klein transferred his 491-acre farm to the church to establish a Moravian community. The following year the town was founded with the name of Lititz..
In addition to mission work, music and education were important to the Moravians. In fact, the Lititz schoolhouse erected in 1746 marked the beginnings of what was to be Linden Hall, the oldest residence school for girls in the United States.
