The Oldest Moravian Village In North Carolina Is A Tiny Town You’ll Want To Spend More Time In
North Carolina is home to some fascinating historical villages including the oldest continuously inhabited Moravian village in the southern United States. The Moravian Church is more than 500 years old and began in Bohemia and Moravia in what is now the Czech Republic.
