Lonely Planet review

One of the country's earliest religious communities was founded here in 1732 by Conrad Beissel, a German emigre escaping persecution in his native land and dissatisfied with wordly ways and distractions. There's a small museum in the visitor center and you can walk or take a guided tour of its collection of medieval-style buildings.
