For another look at the religious history of the area, the nearby town of
Ephrata preserves its Cloister, a group of buildings built by a German charismatic leader who in 1732 gathered followers for the practice of a celibate and mystical religion.  The vegetarian sect, renown for their musical compositions in five part vocal harmony and for their Germanic calligraphy and printing press, grew to 300 in the 1740s but then withered after 1768, remaining as a 28-acre museum with many of the original antique buildings preserved.
