This is one of several historic Moravian settlement sites in the Winston-Salem area (which include Bethania and Old Salem). A small but informative visitor center with friendly and informative staff, that includes a gift shop section. several old buildings, garden section, and old fort area.

This is really a park for anyone interested in local history. There really isn’t much else to see but some ruins. There are trails to walk, but rained threatened so we left.
