Secretary of the
Interior Ken Salazar today announced the designation of 26 national
historic landmarks and one national natural landmark as places that
possess exceptional value
and quality in illustrating or interpreting the heritage of the United
States. Currently there are only 2,527 designated national historic
landmarks and 592 national natural landmark sites across the country
that bear this national distinction.
One of these historic landmarks is in Pennsylvania:
- Historic Moravian Bethlehem Historic District, Bethlehem, Pa. As an outstanding example of Moravian architecture and town planning, the Historic Moravian Bethlehem Historic District is the physical expression of a structured, 18th-century communal religious society.
