Overview

The full history of one of the South's hidden treasures is finally given celebration in Images of Old Salem: & Now.

Old Salem self-contained preservation of a pre Revolutionary War Moravian settlement that, like Colonial Williamsburg, has delighted and awed countless visitors with its warm clapboard homes and heirloom gardens. To walk among its cobbled roads and "living history interpreters," after all, is to walk in eras past. Yet few have stopped to consider the rich history of each building or the fascinating work that has allowed Old Salem to so faultlessly capture its heritage.

Using exclusive photographs taken through the centuries and engaging text about the history and the restorations that have created the Old Salem experience of today, Images of Old Salem: & Now collapses past and present old cobblers and new caretakers into a single experience that makes Old Salem feel more vivid than ever before.

For instance: George Washington once spent two nights in Old Salem, but in what building did he stay, and how was that building later preserved? The groundbreaking Images of Old Salem: & Now produced in partnership by Old Salem Museums & Gardens and John F. Blair, Publisher answers that question and countless more.
