Interesting historically

We love history and this was an interesting area. It would have been better to go with more flowers in bloom, but we learned a lot about the former inhabitants.

A great place to visit with a nice visitors center were you can get plenty of information. Very educational and always worth a visit if you are in the Winston Salem area.

This was a nice original Moravian settlement. Beautiful Gemeinhaus (Church Meeting Hall) Old foundations. Not all buildings restored.

We did this on the last day of a three day visit to Winston Salem. It was soggy, but okay to tour in previously very rainy conditions. Many years ago we had toured Old Salem with our then young children.. It was great. I had never heard of this park but read that it was actually the original Moravian settlement... More

Our ancestors followed with Moravians from Pennsylvania to North Carolina. We wanted to see the life of the Moravians! Some buildings were reconstructions, but Geminhaus or church was original. It had living quarters for the minister. Tour guide was in period costume & was very informative! We enjoyed the video! Gift shop was very reasonable! Enjoyed!

The Moravian settlement has been restored in great detail. The old fort catches your eye when you first arrive. The visitors center is a great place to start. The community garden is most interest. The pavilion is free to use and the have ABC permits

We had a good time with our canine dog family member. It is well maintained . The dog had a great time running around. The park is clean. Fun for humans and a canine family member.

This is a gorgeous outdoor area perfect for an afternoon visit on a pretty day. The picture associated with the profile does it no justice. One of the original Moravian settlements in Winston-Salem, Bethabara Park now has interesting re-created architectural features and some original structures, including the church built in 1788. There are pretty greenway trails along the creek, and... More

I have taken my grandchildren here a couple of times, but also attended the apple festival & the highland games. The gardens are always beautiful & make for some great photos. A good place to explore some history but not too big.
