A Walk Downtown in the Snow

As promised, I went out yesterday early evening, and then a little later when it was dark, to takes some photos of downtown Lititz all decked out for Christmas.   The Moravian people settled in Lititz as early as the mid 1700's.   The Moravian's were a pious people who came to the colonies to escape religious persecution.  This picture is of the Lititz Moravian Church.  

The church steeple has a large Moravian star that just glows when lit at night.

There are many quaint shops on Main Street.  The next three pictures are some of my favorite Christmas storefronts.

The next few photos are of Lititz Springs Park.

Lititz has some lovely old buildings with beautiful architectural features.  I was actually shocked to find that this beautiful stone building only dates back to 1941.

That concludes my tour of downtown Lititz.   I hope you enjoyed taking the walk down Main Street with me!

  4. Gosh, Doreen, these photos are beautiful! Thanks for sharing your Winter scenes. Palm trees and green grass are year round here, so it's nice to see the change of seasons and a Winter wonderland, even if via others' photos. I just wanted to let you know that I gave you a shout out on my blog the other day. I made your Peppermint white chocolate spoons at Christmas. I've been enjoying some of them in my coffee! They were delicious!


Please post a comment! I would love to hear your thoughts!
