Membership Has it Privileges

The Sun Inn Preservation Association was founded in 1972 for the explicit purpose of acquiring, restoring, interpreting and maintaining the 1758 Moravian Sun Inn, for the community at large. The charge to the organization is to preserve this significant and historic building and its environs spiritually and physically for the present and future generations. The Sun Inn Preservation Association continues its stewardship of the restored Sun Inn with an active calendar of historical and educational programming. Please help us continue in our effort to maintain the Sun Inn as a prominent historic site in downtown Bethlehem.
