“It has everything”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

The Benton Convention center has been a staple in Winston-Salem for years. It serves many events such as the home show, craft shows, art shows, etc. Its a very convenient place to go and it has everything needed you are attending a show.......excellent

“Almost Untouched, An American Archaeological Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

As a child, I remember once going into a 1700's building being restored in Virginia. There, I saw the actual decaying wall paper that had been put on by workers or slaves of the time and I was always disappointed by the newness of the renovation that followed. Well, if your preference is the newness of Colonial Williamsburg, then you won't like Bethabara. It's raw, it's true, and it is extremely accurate. That's the way of the Moravians. Great record keepers for hundreds of years, providing a "map" for the lay out of this small settlement that contains the oldest Medicinal Garden in America. They weren't hippies but they sure knew their herbs and this garden is "right-on" for accuracy - give or take climate changes over the past 200 years and threatened seed extinction. Building foundations are deliberately exposed, no renovations or rebuilding planned. The climb to the cemetery reeks with history. This is a history buffs dream.
