The first section of the Single Sisters’ House was constructed in 1744 parallel to the Gemeinhaus along the limestone bluff and facing south. This German Colonial style building has herringbone-patterned doors with a two story attic and brick arches over windows. It is constructed of roughly coursed limestone that is pointed with a flush joint. On the south façade, you can still see the sundial dated 1744 when this portion of the complex was constructed.

Tours are available as a part of the Moravian Museum of Bethlehem tour at request.
