This is a passage in time, take your time, mull around the fort and buildings and feel a taste of history in the wonderful Visitors area!

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.

place is similar like a park with old buildings and nice garden, but the garden is closed to public!! you can just watch from outside the fence. An Evening stroll in the park and near the buildings is peaceful

We went when everything was closed for the day. I didn't know what to expect but I learned something about the Moravians just by reading the signs.

What a fun time we had with live music and activities for the kids and adults all a little challenging but thought provoking. Lots of history tied up in the set up of the museum and grounds. Enjoyed the live music as well as all the events scheduled for the day

Beautiful place to spend an afternoon. We went while festivities were going on, children's choir in the old church, re-enactment of how the area was established, displays in the main building of the heritage of the area and more.

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.
