The Oldest Book Store In America Is Right Here In Pennsylvania — And It’s Amazing

The Moravian Book Shop in Bethlehem is not only the oldest book shop in the country, but it is also quite possibly the oldest continuously running book shop in the world. It was opened in 1745 by the Moravian Church, which has a strong presence in the area, and has been operating ever since, though it has changed location a few times.
