Emmaus, Pennsylvania is a quaint historic community of 12,000 nestled on the northern slope of South Mountain. It lies 50 miles north of Philadelphia and 20 miles west of the Delaware River. Formed in 1759 as a closed Moravian village on land owned by the church, Emmaus was incorporated as a Pennsylvania borough a hundred years later in 1859.
