There is just one continuous and independent Moravian settlement remaining in North Carolina—Bethania. The town was founded in 1759 and remains an active residential neighborhood. Bethania was designed as an agricultural village and includes homes from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, including several that are being restored.
The original Bethania Moravian Church, which was constructed in 1809, and the 1899 renovated mill have become part of a small shopping district. The Wolff-Moser House was built in the 1790s and is one of the original homes in Bethania.
It’s a museum that highlights life in the Moravian settlement.
