(Photo by Diane LaBelle)

After 1743, 90 percent of all buildings were constructed of stone removed from a quarry on the south side of the Lehigh River. The Gemeinhaus contained a chapel, but a larger building was needed as the community grew. This building was constructed in 1751 and attached to the Gemeinhaus. A third church replaced this one in 1806.

Questions for Photo 4

1. Are there obvious indications of the purpose served by the building? If so, what are they?

2. How does the exterior of the chapel differ from other stone buildings in Bethlehem?
