Linden Hall's 49-acre campus is located in historic Lititz, Pennsylvania, (population: 8,000) ideally situated between Harrisburg and Philadelphia, two hours from Washington, D.C., and three hours from New York City. Its picturesque Main Street dates back to the early 18th century, when Count Nicholas von Zinzendorf of Saxony, Germany, established the town and its name.
Listed as one of the nation's Top 10 Distinctive Destinations by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and named Coolest Small Town in America for 2012-2014, Lititz is a perfect example of small-town American charm, with an eclectic mix of specialty shops, cafes, and restaurants. Lititz is also home to Wilbur Chocolate and Sturgis Pretzels, the site of America's first commercial pretzel bakery.
Here, and in nearby Lancaster, students have access to many of the cultural amenities available in larger metropolitan areas. From theatres to art galleries to world-class cuisine, students will find that Linden Hall's location has much to offer in the way of entertainment and cultural experiences.
Linden Hall was founded in 1746 by the Moravian Church. The Moravians were among the first to offer girls an education and believed that the education of young women was just as valuable as the education of young men. These principles provide the foundation for Linden Hall's educational philosophy.
