Bethlehem was founded over 250 years ago in 1741 when a religious group, members of the Moravian Church, purchased land where the Monocacy Creek flows into the Lehigh River. Bethlehem was christened on Christmas Eve, 1741, in a stable while the small group of Moravians were singing a hymn with the stanza “Not Jerusalem, Lowly Bethlehem.” Bethlehem is truly Christmas City, USA.

The Historic Hotel Bethlehem is a top rated hotel with an excellent location and more than 14,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space. Restored to its original 1922 grandeur, Historic Hotel Bethlehem’s floor-to-ceiling palladium windows provide dramatic views of the historic shopping district, and are amongst the National Trust Historic Hotels of America.

Bethlehem is a city of 75,000 people in eastern Pennsylvania – a city known for its rich colonial and industrial history. Today Bethlehem is experiencing an economic and cultural renaissance promising a future as bright as the city’s past.
