On a whim, I walked down to the Colonial Industrial Quarter and the adjacent public park by the river. Very pretty area and a nice place to walk and enjoy nice weather. I didn't get the chance to go into the historical buildings here, but they looked really well preserved and really pretty. With the river right there, its a... 更多
Maybe not the biggest fanciest site in Bethlehem, this one comes close to its heart and soul. Its a very old town, and visiting the oldest area is a must.

This is a great place in Bethlehem. It was the first industrial park in the country. There were 50 or so different industries along the creek. Today only a few remain. Historic Bethlehem gives tours of the buildings and on certain days there are demonstrations of how they worked 200 years ago. Very interesting for history buffs!

Arrived in the evening and walked around the area. It is well laid out and marked with plenty of information. A lot of little bunnies running around entertained the kids. Area is clean and well maintained.

I'm new to the area and just happened upon this place on a Sunday evening. I walked into the metalsmith shop where a gentleman was working on creating some replica hardware pieces for historic homes. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and gave me a great background on the area. I continued down the back and visited the various buildings that... 更多
It was nice to show some historic background of the city but should be part of the visit to the historic area of the city.
