Beautiful resting place.

Went through on a Segway Tour, and was impressed with the history of God's Acre. Quite and well kept. Next to this is a cemetery with graves of prominent people of Winston-Salem.

This is such a peaceful place to visit. My family and I enjoy walking around reading the headstones to get a feel for the life these folks had in the 1800's. This makes me appreciate our modern life. I would recommend visiting just for a de-stress session and make peace with your soul.

I am a native of Winston-Salem, and this is a hidden beauty of our city. It is a place to go out and clear your head, it is a place to go and mourn, and it is a place to rid yourself of any evil. You can't find this anywhere else.

This is holy ground and in death, we are all equal. The Moravian Graveyard lies in the shadow of downtown Winston-Salem, but it is a peaceful and idyllic sanctuary. There are paths between the sections and it only takes a few minutes of walking this sacred land to find peace and put life into perspective. All the headstones look very... More

God's Acre is the burial ground for the Moravian people of Old Salem. It is quite impressive to see all of the identical white head stones. It is well kept and an honor for those who are buried there.

A beautiful site Easter morning! Moravians have been out and cleaned the stones until they are shining bright and white symbolizing our Saviors victory over death!

We toured God's Acre on a Segway tour. It was lovely. The uniformity made the entire place a lovely place to visit. It was interesting to hear about the Moravian principles and philosophy about equality and to see it practiced in this way.

My husband is buried in God's Acre, so I visit rather frequently. I never tire of its quiet beauty while looking to the horizon with its skyline of the skyscrapers of busy Winston. Since Salem's name was taken from the Hebrew for 'Peace" and the whole village is strangely peaceful even during the busiest holiday periods, nowhere is that peace... More
