History

Christened “Bethlehem” on Christmas Eve 1741, Bethlehem is a city rich in tradition and celebrations. From the majestic history of the Historic Moravian Bethlehem District to the post-industrial revitalization of the Bethlehem Steel plant into an arts and cultural campus, the Christmas City has something for everyone, all year long.
