Moravian Book Shop

428 Main Street, Bethlehem, PA 18018 GET DIRECTIONS

The Moravian Book Shop, the oldest bookstore in the world, was founded in 1745 when the Moravian Church appointed Samuel Powell of the Church's Crown Inn on the South Side of the Lehigh River to operate a book store. After several locations, the Moravian Book Shop was moved to the church's publications building near the Central Moravian Church in 1871. Today, the Moravian Book Shop's home is this same site on Historic Main Street in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
