Bethlehem is located in east-central Pennsylvania in the Lehigh Valley Region. In the 2000 census, the city had a population of 74,982, which makes it the seventh largest city in the state. In the July 2006 issue of Money Magazine, Bethlehem ranked 88 on the "Top 100 Places to Live" list. There are 3 areas of the city; North Bethlehem, South Bethlehem and West Bethlehem. Each area contains portions that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Bethlehem is also home to America's sixth-oldest college, Moravian, a broad-based liberal arts college. Nicknamed "Christmas City, USA," Bethlehem was founded in 1741 when members of the Moravian Church purchased land. It is said that the settlers met in a stable on Christmas Eve, 1741 to christen the town by singing a hymn with the stanza, "not Jerusalem, lowly Bethlehem." Several 18th century stone buildings remain in the town, including 1744 Bell House/Sisters' House Complex, 1748 Single Brethren's House, 1751 Old Chapel and 1768 Widow's House. These buildings are considered some of the best examples of 18th century Colonial Germanic architecture in the U.S.A. Bethlehem is also known as the "City of Festivals." Over ten major festivals are held in the city each year and over 150 "mini-festivals" or events are held throughout the year. A few of the events include a Blueberry Festival, Blast Furnace Blues Festival and Main Street Harvest Festival.
