Overview

West Salem is located in the southeast corner of Winston-Salem. It has the historical distinction of containing the land that made up the farms and industry of Colonial Salem. While East Salem, the congregational town and village, controlled business and religious interests, West Salem provided the heart, soul, and backbone of the area with the work of its blue-collar residents. The residents produced the food, mills, and industrial interests that allowed the town to function so successfully in its early years. Throughout West Salem's history, it always triumphed over such challenges as wars and the Great Depression. Images of America: Historic West Salem showcases the stories and photographs of the regular folks whose hard work and sacrifice fueled the greatness of our American leaders.
