Visitors to the center of Mount Gretna will notice something quite unusual: no lawns. The area around Mount Gretna is rolling and wooded, and this extends to the "yards" of the houses and other buildings. As one tourist noted: "it´s sort of an elf village." Indeed, as one drives along the highway toward Mount Gretna, the woods stay the same, it´s just that there are more and more buildings in the forest.
Lititz is a borough in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, 6 miles (approximately 10 km) north of Lancaster. It was founded by members of the Moravian Church in 1756, and was named after a castle (mentioned form of name is German; Czech name of this castle is Litice) in Bohemia near the village of Kunvald where the ancient Bohemian Brethren´s Church had been founded in 1457. The roots of the Moravian Brethren´s Church date back to the ancient Bohemian Brethren´s Church. For a century, only Moravians were permitted to live in Lititz. Until the middle of the 1800s, only members of the congregation could own houses; others were required to lease. The lease-system was abolished in 1855, just 5 years before the beginning of the Civil War. More information can be found in the book A Brief History of Lititz Pennsylvania by Mary Augusta Huevener, published in 1947.
