Lostvestige: Old Salem in the Snow
After a snow storm last year, we made a quick stop in Old Salem before heading to work, to see all the historic shops and houses nestled under a blanket of snow.
The city of Winston-Salem started out as a small Moravian town in the mid 1700s named Salem. Eventually it merged with the neighboring town of Winston and then, Winston-Salem was born!
Many of the original buildings remain. I love to wander around, thinking of what it was like to walk the same streets those hundreds of years ago.
I love Old Salem in the snow! Perhaps it should become a tradition when it snows to take a nice stroll through the historic streets of Salem.
