Families and individuals will enjoy free admission to the 1740-1743 Whitefield House museum in beautiful, downtown Nazareth from 1 pm - 4 pm Sunday.
Experience the story of the Moravians (the town founders of Nazareth and Bethlehem).
Guests will come face-to-face with one of the oldest and most exquisite collections of local objects including the oldest known American made violin in the country, eight important John Valentine Haidt oil paintings, several examples of early furniture and other household objects all the while enjoying the oldest Moravian buildings in North America.
Children (and those young at heart) will enjoy playing typical colonial games such as Jacob’s Ladder, Graces, Ball and Cups outside on the property. Crafts will include coloring Frakturs, a regional folk art form.
Megan van Ravenswaay, Whitefield House Site Director stated “The first “Free Summer Sundays” program was incredibly successful. We welcomed hundreds of guests to the site to enjoy our historic property, exhibitions, and colonial games. We are incredibly grateful to our sponsors for allowing us to offer this new program. It was such a success we look forward to repeating it next year!”
Program sponsored by the Perusse, Gaspar, Gerricke, and Crook families.
