If you enjoy history & also some outdoor time with a bit of walking through 'the past', this park will be right up your alley. It's interesting to see how pioneers lived & gardened in the past AND the walking trails are very diverse with an area through a swamplike venue....lots of waterfowl. Also a good place to bring your... More

There are only a few restored buildings you can visit so unless you do some hiking on the extensive trails, it is not an all day stop but it is well preserved (or restored), well laid out and interesting for young and old. Not hard to find and easy to visit.

Glad to see that the city of Winston Salem is preserving their history. The village was so interesting and the docents very informative. Especially enjoyed the church and the garden. The film at the visitor center was good also. It was a little warm the afternoon we went so did not do the nature trail. We will go again when... More

The Park is not quite what Old salem is, but was founded first in the state and before Old Salem. The village has several structures and a palisades and flower garden and the original Church that you can tour for a small fee. Walking area near by that you can travel too. Take water with you if you are out.

It is very rustic and not a lot of buildings but it is important in the Moravian history of Winston Salem. Also in the spring it is a gorgeous place with lots of flowering bushes and trees! My daughter had her wedding portraits taken there and they were stunning!!

I always enjoy walking along the many trails in the park. I would come here as a kid and walk around with the family dog and enjoyed walking around the foundations of the old houses.

It is a small venue, but a direct link to the settlement of Salem in Winston Salem. I have not read the poor reviews yet but it was and is basically a small settlement with a makeshift fort. This site is preserved very well and unique.

You get the feeling that you are living in the days of the Moravian culture. Buildings and grounds are really authenic (in most case they really are). A very nice compliment to nearby Old Salem.

My parents found this place while taking a drive. It is so cool. We went to a couple of festivals that they have through out the year. It is really neat to learn about local history especially if you are not from around here!
