Ephrata Cloister is one of America's earliest religious communities. Founded in 1732 by a German immigrant, who came to Pennsylvania to escape religious persecution, the community included celibate and married members totaling approximately 300 people at its zenith in the 1750s. Their accomplishements amaze us to this day and include: composing over 1000 hymns and unique music style; beautifully written manuscripts and wall charts, printing of the largest book in the colonies prior to the American Revolution; and their magnificent buildings that are still standing today. Come visit and learn about this unique religion and tour original buildings that are unlike anything you've ever seen before!
