See the 2nd largest collection of human hairwork on display in the country! Hairwork, the practice of braiding, laying wrapping, or weaving human hair to create intricate jewelry, wreaths, realistic landscapes, words, or bouquets, rose in popularity in the Victorian Era, 1837–1901, as a way to memorialize the memories of loved ones in a time before photography was widely available.

About Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites

Founded on Christmas Eve in 1741 by a small group of Moravian settlers and christened “Christmas City, USA” in 1937, Bethlehem brims with history. To shine a light on this past, the Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites works to preserve artifacts, gardens, ruins, and historic sites, and it shares these relics with the community through year-round guided tours and museum exhibits.

To this end, the partnership is composed of many non-profit organizations and manifests itself in various endeavors, such as:

  • The Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts, which features exhibits like HairWork, a collection of mementos made by Victorians out of loved ones' hair
  • The 10.9-mile Heritage Trail, which snakes through landmarks, Victorian-era homes, and old Bethlehem Steel buildings
  • The Moravian Museum of Bethlehem, a bastion of exhibits about the town’s settlers, including their missionary work, education system, and medical techniques
