Asheville, North Carolina
September 10-11, 2017 Day Trip to Old Salem and
Zoological Park - Winston Salem and Statesville, NC
Asheville Prime Timers will travel to Winston Salem for a visit to
OLD SALEM, the original Moravian Settlement in NC in 1766. This
Protestant church was begun in the Czech Republic and brought over by settlers. Salem was the central administrative, spiritual, craft, and professional town surrounded by five outlying congregations.
Salem residents were also well respected for their architecture and attention to detail. The architecture and landscape of Salem are still quite accurate, as about three-quarters of the Historic Town buildings are original structures.
