A Cool Town

Lititz, Pennsylvania is a cool town.

Members of the Moravian Church founded it back in 1756 and named it after a castle. And actually for 100 years, only Moravians could live in the town. And then the powers that be said you could live there, but you had to lease a house … unless you were Moravian.

But by the time of the Civil War the town was open to everyone.

Right along the main street is Linden Hall School, founded by the Moravians back in 1746 and is now considered the oldest all-girls boarding school in the U.S. (and still educating girls).

Downtown Lititz would be picturesque no matter when you walked down the street, but on the fall morning we were there, the leaves made it even more colorful and appealing.

So take an autumn walk through Lititz …
