On a historical note, Lititz was established in 1756 by the Moravian Church as an exclusive religious community until 1855, when the town welcomed people of all religious creeds. The town played an active role in the Revolutionary War, Civil War, and Industrial Revolution, and served as an early musical, educational, and commercial hub.
