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.

Bethabara was the first Moravian settlement in the area; it was intended to be temporary, since their permanent site was to be Salem. So, it’s good to get a look at their first location to compare it to their later settlement. We paid the $4...More
