Gnaden Huetten Massacre Site Image 1

The Moravian mission of this name was built in 1746 to accommodate the growing number of Mohican and Delaware Indian converts. It was the first white settlement in present-day Carbon County. It was burned on November 24, 1755, during a raid by Indians, who were incited to violence by the French. Victims of the attack are buried in the Lehighton Cemetery near here.
