Neat old church. Personifies the era. The guide and hostess were very friendly and accommodating. One of the buildings you can visit without buying a ticket.

Home Moravian has been holding services since Salem was founded in the 1700's. If you are there at Easter be sure to attend Love Feast on Friday evening , the music program on Sat. evening. And the sunrise service begins here on Easter morning.
