Old Salem Museums & Gardens

Since the town's founding in 1766, Salem was
known for its strong focus on religion, music,
literacy and hearth cooking practices. Today,
Old Salem Museums & Gardens invites visitors
to see 18th and 19th century Moravian history
come to life through costumed interpreters
and historic trade demonstrations.
St. Philips Heritage Center at Old Salem
Nestled in historic Old Salem on its original site,
is the reconstructed 1823 African Moravian
Log Church. The Log Church was built in
large part with white oak logs raised by the
African Americans of Salem. To hold a growing
congregation, St. Philips African Moravian
Church (a brick structure) was constructed
in 1861. St. Philips served as a safe haven for
Salem's African Americans, both free and
enslaved. The upper level of the church housed
a school room, and it was in this church that
that a Union Calvary Chaplain announced
freedom of slaves in 1865. St. Philips is North
Carolina's oldest standing African American
church and it plays a major role in Old Salem's
ongoing Hidden Town Project.
