The Moravian Church is the reason that Lititz exists as it does. Look it up! My great grandfather assisted in the building of the Sunday School building and a grand piece of furniture is dedicated to him. This complex is absolutely breathtaking and is so full of history! The Moravians have special rituals, not to be missed, such as the... More

The Moravia Church dates back to the dawn of Lititz. The local Founding Fathers were all Moravians. The architecture of the old church is quite lovely. If you love history and the quaint feel of a small town you should visit.

We walked the entire area of the Moravian Church Square and the Linden Hall girls school campus. Wow, what a wonderful property. Very large property and lots to see. We did get to see the... More

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.
