For 250 years, music has filled the cobblestone streets of the Old Salem historic district in Winston-Salem. This summer, the band that’s played everything from Moravian hymns and polkas to rock ’n’ roll covers celebrates its historic milestone with their community.
When Winston and Salem became Winston-Salem, a rustic town of Germanic origins could have been lost to time and punctuation. But today one thing remains the same as it was in the 18th century: Old Salem.
We remember who came before us and what they did and where they lived. We respect our past, and we preserve it. We recognize those who spend their time restoring our heritage. In Old Salem, archaeologists bring respect to 131 lost graves.
