The Moravian Contribution to Colonial North Carolina

Record #:
The Moravian settlement in Wachovia brought many advancements to the then \"untamed\" western portion of North Carolina during the colonial period. The first group of Moravian Brethren, fifteen men between the ages of 28-40, arrived in Wachovia on November 17, 1753. From this humble beginning, a larger Moravian community thrived - bringing schools, medicine, and churches to this otherwise unsettled part of the state.
