Our Home!

218 Main Street is now open for business.  Our hours are Saturdays Noon to 4 PM and Sundays 10 AM - 2 PM and by appointment. This historic building, built in 1824, is listed on the original Moravian Village Map and is the former home of Judge Richard Iobst.  

As you know, for several years we have needed more museum space to display and showcase our collections of Emmaus artifacts and photographs.  Our new building will provide us with two and one half times more space, increased parking and room for future expansion if required.

Our membership is now over 1000!  We thank all of you for your continued membership, support and donations you may have made to the museum in the past.  We hope you will want to be a part of our new home.  We have launched the Capital Campaign to help raise some of our $300,000 purchase price, as well as accessibility compliance requirements.

Your tax deductible gift, in any amount, will be greatly appreciated and acknowledged.  Contributions may be made in memory of or in honor of someone or an event.  Donors who contribute $500.00 or more will have their names engraved on a brass plate to be displayed in the foyer of the new museum under the following categories:

 Moravians:  $500.00 to $999.00

The Triangle:  $1000.00 to $2499.00  

Golden Jubilee:  $2500.00 to $4999.00

Diamond Jubilee:  $5000.00 or More

All donors will receive an early 1920’s postcard reproduction of our new museum home!
