A Walk Through Moravian History in Ephraim

Moravian history is so in-depth, and integrally linked to the founding of Ephraim by Rev. Andreas Iverson in 1853, that the Ephraim Historical Foundation created a weekly tour in 2010 to share this rich history.

Every Thursday from 1:30 – 3 pm, the public may follow volunteer guides for a two-part tour. The first portion of the tour will begin at the Ephraim Moravian Church, led by long-time guide, Linda Carey. Dressed in her Norwegian style folk dress, she will describe the beginning of the Moravian faith in the 15th century in Czechoslovakia, while standing near the pulpit hand-crafted by Andreas Iverson himself.

A short walk down a dirt path leads to the Historic Iverson House where a second knowledgeable guide, typically Nancy Davis, will meet guests to lead them through the rooms of the oldest framed house in Door County.

Tickets for the 2011 Moravian Church/Iverson House Tours are $5 per adult, $3 per student, and free for children. Tickets are available for purchase at the Moravian Church each Thursday at 1:30 pm or at the Anderson Barn History Center or Anderson Store Museum during regular museum hours.
