Gnaden Huetten Memorial Hosptial

http://www.lehightonchamber.org/photos.htm

Gnaden Hutten Memorial Hospital is located on 211 N 12th street Lehighton, Pa 18235. The Hospital is named after the Gnaden Hutten Massacre that took place in Gnaden Hutten (meaning “tents of grace”), Pennsylvania in1755. This small town, now known as Lehighton was formed when the Moravian Brethren Society began converting the local Lenni Lenape Indians into Christianity. For a while to two groups lived in harmony until one day the mission was attacked and ten people were killed, one person was captured, and all the buildings were burned to the ground. Many forts were built following this attack and it was not until after the Revolutionary war that the settlers felt safe from the attacks. On a corner in Lehighton, Pennsylvania sits a marble slab with the following inscription in remembrance to victims of the attack:

 

 “To the memory of Gottleib and Christina Anders, with their children: Johanna, Martin, and Susanna Nitchman; Ann Catherina Senseman, Leonard Gattenmyer, Christian Fabricus, Clerk, George Schweigert, John Frederick Lesly, and Martin and Presser; who lived at Gnadenhuetten, unto the Lord, and lost their lives in a surprise from Indian warriors, November 24, 1755. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” -- Psalms CXV 1-15

Today the Gnaden Hutten Memorial Hospital, along with the rest of the Blue Mountain Health System, is founded to meet the needs of their communities. They set public services to the priority of their mission and work to restore and maintain good health to their patients.
