Artist's Description

Tools in the carpenter’s house.

One of America’s earliest religious communities, the Ephrata Cloister was founded in 1732 by German settlers seeking spiritual goals rather than earthly rewards. Gathered in unique European style buildings, the community consisted of celibate Brothers and Sisters in residence, and a married congregation of families who lived outside the cloister. The town of Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA, grew up near the cloister.

At the zenith of the community in the 1740s and 1750s, about 300 members worked and worshiped at the Cloister. Today, the National Historic Landmark is open for tours, special programs, and on-going research opportunities. The site has been owned and administered by the state of Pennsylvania since 1940.
