I love history. We happened upon the Moravian Church Square and Linden Hall, the oldest girls prep school in the U.S. by accident during a recent day trip to Lititz PA. We found out that the Moravian church split from the Catholic Church 100 years before Luther's Reformation! We looked through the little gift shop which had lots of cute... More

We lucked out. The maintenance man, Matt, saw us walking the yard and offered to open the church to let us in. We ended up with our own little personalized tour of the church. Gorgeous in its simplicity in. Even saw the original kitchen in the basement. A highlight of our trip to Lititz.

Visiting the Moravian Church Square during the late fall was absolutely beautiful. We learned more about the Moravian tradition at the interesting store and explored the adjacent cemetery where John Sutter, a non-Moravian is buried. The imposing stone Linden school for girls still stands and continues to operate.

We visited the charming town of Lititz for the second time and were delighted to learn about the Moravian Church and see this lovely square. We had no idea what this Christian group's doctrines were or its origins, besides being obviously Germanic. Spend some time at the Historical Society across the Main Street first. Puts everything in perspective!

A great place to Praise God. Friendly people, there is so much history and love in this place that makes you feel at home. Some might say it is a beautiful building, not I. I say that it is a place were you feel very close to God. Their music, the instruments used, the hymns, it's very old organ, (that... More

We walked around the Moravian Church, then down to the girls prep school. Beautiful grounds, the leaves are turning.

After visiting the Lititz Historical Foundation Museum, we crossed the street and checked out the buildings there. First there was Linden Hall - which was the 1st girls boarding school in the USA and is still active today as such. We toured the grounds and met a young lady who attended the school. She answered a few of our questions,... More

My husband and I actually went to the Moravian church on Sunday at 10:30am. It's a beautiful area with friendly, warm people. I wish we could have taken the tour--next time, we will! The church has an amazing history, going back to George Washington using the building as a hospital for wounded soldiers. Graves in the back are as old... More
