We really enjoyed seeing the Moravian Church and the gift shop. The gift shop sells locally made crafts and donates the money to the Moravian mission. We started there, bought a few interesting and attractive items at reasonable prices, then were offered a tour of the church. I had never met a Moravian, didn't know the religion was active to...

We were stopped by the display of flags in the Common for the Fourth of July Celebration... this is a photographer's stop. Because of the holiday none of the buildings were open, but there were signs and information boxes that offered some interesting information and forced some keep observation and awareness. Left feeling that a return visit might be interesting...

What a place of peace! This church is set in a picturesque town, has beautiful stained glass windows and is well worth visiting.

A quiet, beautiful place to walk or simply stop for a rest while visiting Lititz attractions. Love walking the pathways of the square anytime of year, but especially at Christmas time.

This is a very beautiul campus, the oldest women's boarding school in the country is here. We enjoyed the gift shop and the ladies of the shop were very informative about the Moravian traditions.

The tree filled Moravian Church Square has beautiful trees and sitting areas. The trees provide a beautiful contrast to the school (Linden Hall) and Church buildings found on the exterior of the square. Nice picture spot.

For those of you wanting to really understand the Moravians, visit the archives (open Fridays and Saturdays). The docent will give you an excellent understanding of their philosophy and community in Lititz and around the world.

I took my children there a long time ago. We all had a great time, but we all love history too. This is small town history at its finest. The tour guide was a riot...dressed in period clothes too. She made the history of the Moravian's come alive with the lively stories. Their gift shop across the way was awesome... More
