Very informative people at the information center. The walk to God's Acre is through the woods and up a hill with several steps but well worth the walk. The church and other buildings on the grounds were closed but the visitor center, fort, gardens, and...More

If you're in town and looking for a nice place to walk, this is an excellent choice. There are beautiful trails, rolling hills, and if you're interested in history, you can visit the village itself.

The video shown at Bethabara Park was pretty informative. It is rather telling that it focuses more on the commercial aspects of the early Moravian settlements than on their religious activities. After viewing it, we discussed several matters of interest to us with the staff...More

Thank you so much for your insightful review, Richard. We are currently researching Moravians and slavery in depth for our new museum exhibit. To answer your question briefly: When Moravian settlers arrived in North America, they were generally against owning slaves. However, as time went...More

We were the only ones there and we were only in that main part. It's the end of winter, too, so nothing was blooming. It was unexciting and brief for us unfortunately.
