A nice place to drive through with really old homes around the same period as Old Salem and Bethabara park. Has a nice gift shop and sandwich place in a made over mill.

This was near WakeForest so we decided to visit. The visitor center was great for a map and a full understanding of the Moravians. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch across the street at Muddy Bottom Cafe after a walk to The Moravian Cemetary.

The kids at our school love to go to Bethania. Someone in the group gets to dress up. the whole group gets to play old timey games. They have individuals dressed in period costume to explain everything.

Interesting historical little town. Lady at the visitor center was very knowledgeable. Several walking tours that can also be driven. Don't miss the cemetery. Interesting how the Moravian buried their dead.

My dad and I went on a Sunday so the visitor's center was closed. We didn't really do the historic buildings as we were more interested in the walking trails. It was a very nice walk through the woods and fields. Most of the trail is on the level and a lot of it is single file as it can... More

This is one of my favorite walks in any season. It is like Narnia in the Summer. A flower fairyland in the Spring. A symphony of color on Autumn. And a stroll among tall, majestic barren trees in winter. The trail crosses several streams and meanders through fields and forrest.

The walking trail is beautiful, the historic buildings are very nice and each has a little history. It was smaller than I expected and really everything is by car, but beware of traffic, the road is a driving road and is used by people other than using the park. It was very nice and would go back, but don't plan... More

We are glad we took the time to visit this little settlement. We found our guide to be very friendly and very knowledgable about the area and history of the Moravians.

I have come to Bethania dozens of time over the years and always enjoyed my visits although to be honest there's really not much to see except for the nice old houses and the visitors center. I still like the peaceful atmosphere of the area and the easy going slower pace of the community.
