Welcome to the Moravian Archives for the Southern Province

The Moravian Archives is the official repository for records of the Moravian Church in America, Southern Province. Our records begin with the establishment of the first southern Moravian settlement in 1753 at Bethabara, NC (now part of Winston-Salem), and continue until the present day. While our main function is to serve the Church in the collecting, cataloging, and safekeeping of those materials, we also make many of our holdings available for research by genealogists, academics, cultural institutions, and the general public.
