Village for Browsing By Shirley Campbell If you're driving through Winston-Salem. N. C., and happen to notice a large, building-high, coffee pot standing alone in a plot of grass beside the highway; or a sign that says "Old Salem." you should know you're near a-good place to stop for an hour or more of intriguing sight-seeing. In Old Salem you can walk at a leisurely pace on sidewalks paved with well-worn bricks; be greeted and directed by cordial people in early Moravian attire; and tour 200-year-old buildings, now carefully restored. You may draw water from the town pump, visit a church, or any one of seven buildings open to the public. Merely strolling past old or reconstructed buildings that are private dwellings is enjoyable. You can peer over fences at tiny carefully tended formal gardens, enjoy the aroma of herbs, and walk freely in an atomsphere of long ago. Modern devices ; such as electricial wiring -are carefully hidden. Hosts and hostesses in Old Salem are well-informed and answer questions, willingly. In the John Vogler House, I asked about the titles of the books on the man- .tel : piece and someone oblig- ^vingly consulted a file to tell yime that the half dozen or more books included two song books,'two Bibles, and a book about the world of spirits. The inclusion of music books fits the history of Old Salem, founded by Moravk ans who were playing selections by Haydn and Mozart and giving regular concerts in 1780. Today music is still an important part of the community's Christmas and- Easter celebrations. On Easter morning, bands from each of 12 Moravian churches in Winston-Salem -- about 500 musicians al- .together--assemble near If.--- OIIECUT ON THE OCEAN I Crescent Village S Motel ti ·'ROOMS-DOOMTV , · KITCHENETTES {· · AIR COHDITIOMD J! · HEATED POOl-KIDDIE POOL [;.- · COlf PRIVILEGES 1 J Phone 803 272-6904 l CrtitcntSeothSect. 801 1097 [] NOBTH MYRTLE »EACH, S.C. 29585 il Vinie Carroll, Owner THOMAS REALTY CO. ft REAL ESTATE __ ;{ Phone 803/249-1712 MJ 4 · · ' WRITE BOX 3236 FOR FUtir LLj « ILLUSTRATEDBROCHURE *'"-"" '·*· Cherry G'O«e Section it NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. 29582 the Home Moravian Church in the historic area to participate in a sunrise service attended by as many as 20.000 persons. Of 58 buildings in Old Salem. 48 are original, one of these goes back to 1768. The "'newest" was built in 1845. The reconstructed "First House" was orginally built in 1766, and like some of the others, it is of half-timbered construction. If you arrive in Winston- Salem as late as 3:30 p.m., there's still time to tour the Old Salem tavern, the tavern barn, and the John Vogler house. You may be in time to make a reservation for a candle-lit d i n n e r in the 1816-style tavern dining room. Memorable items in the completely furnished'1819 Vogler house include a cream-colored tile stove, reminiscent of a magic stove in an old story book; A-B-C blocks that are flat rectangles instead of cubes; embroidery on hoops; faded samplers; strangely-shaped door knobs. Salem Tavern, built in 1784, still has its original wide plank floors. Carefully restored throughout, its renovation was based on a study of inventories made at the tavern.which in its heyday housed as many as 40 travelers or traders at a time -- including George Washington, who praised the town's ingenious gravity- flow water system. Early Salem craftsmen were highly skilled and evidence of their work abounds. Brick and tile were made locally, as were pottery, hats, and tin ware. · · John Vogler was both a silversmith and clock maker. The equipment in his house includes a washing machine with a central turn-around apparatus formed of wooden half-rounds. The tavern scullery equipment includes a mechancial potato peeler-with an ad just- able, blade. It clamped to a table. The tavern building itself was insulated with red mud and straw.

Fire buckets made of deer skin and lined with pitch hang in a row. Rat-tail hinges on clothes presses are unique even in a town where pipes made of hollow logs formed one of the earliest water systems in America. John Vogler fashioned a silhouette-making machine you can see demonstrated. A bedroom stove in the tavern has a central hollow space just right for a tea kettle. A brass "honesty box" provided a pipeful of tobacco for a tavern guest who inserted a coin in a slot. If honest, he filled only one pipe and then closed the door of the box. Work was important and honorable in Old Salem and an extremely large collection of early farming tools, chiefly wooden, attests to the fact. Housed in the tavern barn, they share space with many interesting objects, including u huge barrel-made of a hollow log- more than a yard wide by my estimate--and a large, authentic, very old, covered wagon. The buildings are alive and breathing, not musty and unused. Effort is made to keep them that way. Except for Christmas Day, exhibit buildings are open all year. Early'in the day you may visit a bakery or shops where craftsmen are at work. You may choose to visit one of three museums, the tobacco shop, or the fire . house. Or you may decide simply to stroll around until time for a luncheon of shrimp and-rice, gingerbread and lemon sauce, chicken and artichokes, Wirikler's cream puffs, or other 19th century delicacies. If you prefer, you may even go to the dairy bar near the reception center, where you may sit and ponder man's accomplishments in a land once a wilderness, achievements important enough for this restored town to be designated a Registered N a t i o n a l Historic Landmark. tJwrie'rs''Operbiors" * 'UPER 'Your pot roast or your life.
