This Week in Bethlehem History: A chip off the ole first house

Thursday, May 16, 2013 by The Press in Opinion

I couldn't believe it. In my hands was a piece of history: wood from the First House of Bethlehem. The same wood that long ago our pioneer founders hewed out of the wilderness and crafted into a humble dwelling. The very same wood in which Count Zinzendorf, acting upon impulse, led the Moravians in singing, "Not Jerusalem - lowly Bethlehem Twas' that gave us Christ to save us; Not Jerusalem," and thus christened our community on a cold Christmas Eve night.
