Share the Heritage Info

Help Us “Share the Heritage” of History

The Moravian Historical Society invites neighbors and friends to lend their support and join us as we “Share the Heritage”, honoring all the Society does to preserve rich history for the Lehigh Valley area and beyond. We will celebrate at a gala fundraising dinner to be held on Friday evening, May 14, 2010. This year’s “Share the Heritage” Dinner will begin with a wine and cheese reception from 6 to 7 PM at the Whitefield House Museum of the Society, showcasing the new exhibit, "With a Heart Devoted to the Service......the Extraordinary Life of the Missionary and Musician John Antes”. Guests will then travel to the Martin Guitar Company for a delicious buffet dinner; accompanied by guitar music, at 7:30 PM. Director of Artist Relations for C. F. Martin & Co., Dick Boak, will be a special guest speaker for the evening. A raffle, which includes a 1 week stay at a 6 bedroom Ocean Front house in Hilton Head, SC, a week stay at a 2 bedroom beach front condo in Puerto Morelos, Mexico, a beauty basket from Young’s Medical Spa and set of Black South Sea pearls generously donated from Beverly Palm Jewelers.  Many more distinctive items will add more excitement to the event.

The Moravian Historical Society is the oldest historical society in the Lehigh Valley, connecting with over 20,000 people annually, by relating local history and heritage through quality exhibits, programs, and other services. It provides many enjoyable local events including: spirited Fall Walking Tours, inspiring Christmas Candlelight Tours, enjoyable “Little Girls, A Little Tea” parties, enlightening “Artifacts from the Attic” evenings, and the area’s largest and most popular outdoor Arts and Crafts Festival, coming this year on June 12th.   It provides educational experiences for students and other groups and a valuable resource for local history and genealogy.

“The Moravian Historical Society presents the story of the Moravian Church and its contributions to American history and culture.”  Moravians have made many contributions to American Society, in the fields of music, fine art, decorative arts, local history, technology, and much more.  Any visitor or participant, regardless of their religious beliefs can appreciate these contributions.

The Moravian Historical Society is supported by a variety of sources.  A large part of our funding comes from investments, endowments, supplemented by grants, membership fees, and contributions.  Admissions and program fees account for only a small part of our income.

The Society is an independent not-for-profit institution. 

The Society has a distinguished 152-year past and a very promising future. Please support us by attending and enjoying our spectacular May 14th “Share the Heritage” Dinner. Tickets and more information are available by contacting the Society at 610-759-5070 or by emailing

The Moravian Historical Society is located in the Whitefield House Museum at 214 E Center Street in Nazareth, PA.  The museum is open daily from 1 – 4.
