Join Ephrata Cloister in celebrating the many ways that the Ephrata Cloister has inspired visitors since its founding in 1732. This is the one time each year Ephrata’s visitors have the opportunity to tour the 2nd and 3rd floor of the 1743 sisters’ dormitory. As a special treat this year curator-led tours of the upstairs will focus on how the artists Andrew Wyeth, Howard Pyle, Henry Rankin Pore and Joseph Pennell visually interpreted those spaces in the 19th and 20th century. Please call the site at 717-733-6600 for ticket information.
