OLD SALEM MUSEUMS & GARDENS
The Moravians founded Salem, North Carolina, in 1766. Today,
explore Old Salem Museums & Gardens, where the simplicity of
life in the early American South is illuminated through storytelling,
more than 100 acres of historically restored buildings and
landscapes, and artifacts. Home to the Historic Town of Salem,
the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA), and the
Gardens at Old Salem - it offers an enlightening perspective on
those who lived and worked in the early South. Hands-on activities
and events for the entire family take place throughout the year.
Sample hearth cooking, check out historic trade demonstrations,
and shop seasonal décor in Old Salem's shops, and dine in one of
the historic district's two local restaurants.
