Walk through history as we guide you to things to learn, places to discover, and events that help connect us to our rich heritage.
As you take down and put away your Christmas greens, lights, stars, and decorations, Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites is doing the same. Before we box up the last of the ornaments, we have some exciting news to share! Over 750 people voted for their favorite trees in our annual Trees of Historic Bethlehem contest.
