Originally a Moravian settlement, located in what is now Winston-Salem, NC. Actors are contracted out to portray what people would have been doing in the 1600s and 1700s. A horse and carriage pulls kids around the Old Salem town square. School systems all over North Carolina send their children to learn about candlemaking and to eat Moravian sugar cookies.

The community is popularly represented by a silver teapot, a Moravian symbol now identified with Winston-Salem as a whole.

Salem College, Salem Academy, the Salem Tavern, Mayberry's, and a host of old-fashioned shops are located in Old Salem. Governor's School students stay in Salem's dormitories each summer.
