    Hidden Knowledge at Ephrata

We have been planning a new exhibit in our gallery called “Hidden Knowledge at Ephrata.” Due to the COVID-19 crisis, our museum has been closed since March 14. We decided to show this exhibit virtually. Once we’re open again, we hope you’ll visit us to see the exhibit in person. Please let us know what you think!

Special thanks to Dr. Jeff Bach, author of Voices of the Turtledoves: The Sacred World of Ephrata. Without Dr. Bach’s advice and invaluable information, this exhibit would not have been possible.
