In 1741, William Allen deeded 500 acres between the Lehigh River and the Monocacy Creek to the Moravian Church. The Moravians established missions among Native American tribes in the area. On Christmas Eve in 1741, the Moravians named the settlement Bethlehem. Many members of the Continental Congress fled to Bethlehem when the British advanced on Philadelphia during the American Revolution. In December of 1937, Bethlehem received its nickname, Christmas City USA.

Bethlehem’s most prominent attractions are the Wind Creek Casino and Musikfest. Also of note are the many community, art, and entertainment events held at the Steel Stacks, built on the grounds of the defuncted Bethlehem Steel plant.
