Visiting Old Salem in Winston Salem, NC



If you love history,historic buildings & homes, then Old Salem is the place for you to visit.

 I went there on a field trip and I enjoyed every minute. 

I took lots of pics so, please forgive me but, I hope you enjoy the trip thru my eyes.

Sorry the pictures are in no specific order.


Heritage Bridge from visitors center into Old Salem

Simple Christmas decor is used to decorate Old Salem and I like it this way.

Is this bedroom dreamy or what?







The simple decorations of magnolia leaves and fruit. I think this is going to be my theme this year.

Church Doors


Private residence

I love the curve roof and light


Desk in Salem Tavern


White picket fences and cute vines adorn the town






The clock repair shop.



Kitchen in Tavern

I could make this kitchen work for me


Main Street of Old Salem


Moravian Cookies

I brought home Ginger and Sugar in hopes of having some as dessert for Thanksgiving, I don't see that happening now. I ate most of the sugar cookies on the ride home. 


A private heirloom garden, I see a spring trip in the works to see this in full bloom


Another private home

If you live here you have to abide by the historic society rules, nothing modern on the front of your 

home and also be understanding with crazy people like me, and hundreds more stand outside your 

home and take pictures as we ooooh and ahhhh! 


Rosemary and lambs ear blooms along the brick sidewalks



Shultz Shoemaker shop





Organ in Single Brothers house


More white picket fences and stone in a yard


The fireplaces are massive 


This is the place to stop for the Moravian Cookies and other yummy baked goods.


Wood floors are in every house and building. Some in better shape than these but still stunning



If you want to stay one night or a few nights, stop by Zevely Inn Bed & Breakfast

How cool would it be to wake up here and take your morning coffee and stroll the streets on an early morning? I think it would be very cool.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures and can get by Old Salem on your next adventure.

Veterans Day Parade 2015



I am running very late on this post for Veterans Day, enjoy the pics and Thank a Vet anytime of the year, not just Veterans Day!


I was so happy to have my Dad, John and Charlie who are all Vets attend the parade with us.

The kids enjoyed waving flags and hanging out and for a Nov day, the weather was amazing.


Some of the cool cars along the parade route


Vets marched and some rode in cars

Sorry for the brief coverage but, it was a great day!

Thank you Vets!
