In 1741, a group of Moravians settled in the banks of the Lehigh River near the Monocacy Creek. They represented what is now knows as the oldest organized Protestant denomination in the world founded by John Hus.
By 1747, thirty-six different trades and industries found their way into Bethlehem. Bethlehem became a center of heavy industry and trade housing the world headquarters of Bethlehem Steel Corporation that still remain there today. Bethlehem is composed of many historical and beautiful homes that feature old character and Victorian charm.
