Living minutes away, I could walk to the park to tour the grounds. Nice to see the gardens growing and the reenactments. So slow down and take a tour.

There was Celtic music played by numerous groups and heavy athletic games with numerous participants. This is held outside in May every year. Bagpipes, food trucks. Different clans represented.

This site was settled by the Moravians before the Old Salem. The land has been set out to show where the properties and the gardens used to be, parts of walls have been built to represent where they would have been. The gardens are used to grow the medicinal plants of these early settlers, Well worth a visit.

and did it so well. Beautiful area of very old construction elegantly preformed. Moravians were first to settle in Winston-Salem and this area is mostly where the merchants went. You will see working gardens and for a tour price of 4 dollars for adults and l for a child you can get the tour- we did not choose for the... More

Bethabra is a natural and historical showplace. It offers a wide variety of events throughout the year and/or there is plenty to see and do in your own.

We absolutely LOVED our visit here. Learning about the first Moravarian settlers in the Winston Salem area and to see some of the surrounding buildings (or structures) was so very cool. Betty was our tour guide and she is such a knowledgable person. Plan on about 1 1/2 hours to tour is really well.

I drive through this small park daily on my way to work. The one lane section through the middle of the park makes me slow down and reminds me of times when things probably moved at a much slower pace. I like that it has that effect on me. It is fun to watch the seasons change with the pleasant... More

Ticket purchase of Old Salem will provide an opportunity to talk with one of the Master Gardeners and obtain knowledge of the unique gardening practices of this community .Relationships to medicinal herbs will be discussed and beautiful produce available for your enjoyment. Very educational and well worth the price of ticketing alone. Great opportunity to also see many occupied residences... More

Bethabara Park is located of the beaten path in a somewhat hidden area northwest of downtown. The grounds and buildings are extremely well kept and the movie about the history behind the development of Bethabara is very well done. A wonderful experience for travelers with children who appreciate history.
