In 1961, a group of dedicated Lititz residents combined efforts to preserve the rich history of this area; the Lititz Historical Foundation, a non-profit organization, which includes the Lititz Museum and the Johannes Mueller House, was created.
Visitors to the Lititz Museum and Johannes Mueller House learn a history rich in creativity. The important contributions made in Lititz are displayed through the many artifacts and exhibits, some of which change on a regular basis, making each visit an adventure.
Whether you’re looking for artifacts from the very first inhabitants of the Lititz area–the Native Americans, an intriguing display of Frakturs and stitchery, a historic Moravian home complete with memorabilia of family life, or a replica of Gen. John Sutter’s bedroom, there’s something here that will inspire YOU!
The displays within the museum, which is housed in the Christian Schropp home from 1793, provide just the right atmosphere for a trip in time back to the late 1700’s in the Moravian society of Lititz. An illustrated timeline pictures the growth of Lititz from Indian settlements through the incorporation of the present Borough system. The Sutter Room, dedicated to General John Sutter, founder of Sacramento, California, a resident of Lititz from 1871 to 1880, is furnished with items from his home. Other rooms throughout the museum offer items seen nowhere else in the world.
