Within a mile from the center of Winston-Salem, the 21st century gives way to an earlier time in the historic district of Old Salem. Cross-timbered houses, costumed interpreters, historic and interactive museums, and period gardens show and tell the story of the Moravian town of Salem, established in 1766. Old Salem is also the home of Salem Academy and College, begun in 1772 as a school to educate Moravian girls and in continuous operation since its founding. Step back in time and view Salem before and after its transformation to a living history museum, and experience the Moravian way of life in Piedmont North Carolina.
