#waybackwednesday Samantha at the spinning wheel at the 2019 Apple Festival. Before the invention of the cotton gin, fibers like wool from sheep and linen from flax were worn by most colonists, including the Moravians. Flax and wool were processed to make thread and cloth for clothing. #cityofwinstonsalem #cityofws #piedmonttriad #moravianhistory #moravians #nationalhistoriclandmark #americancolonialhistory #nchistoricsites #nchistory #visitnc #colonialreenactors #colonialreenactment (Photo by Julie Freeman) ...

“This was my first time at the park, but I would return again when visiting Winston-Salem. Bethabara is smaller and less crowded than nearby Old Salem. It is also much more affordable. The archeological sites were well preserved…it was clear that Historic Bethabara Park is lovingly and thoughtfully maintained.”

“I live within a ten-minute walk of the park, have trod its paths for years, worked in its community garden, brought out-of-town guests for the tour, attended many Apple Festivals and Celtic Festivals, sung in the Gemeinhaus at Christmas. I bought my house here because it was close to this wonderful park! It’s not just beautiful and historic, but it is full of life and music with so many events throughout the year.”

“My daughter and I went here on a field trip for our homeschool…I loved this place, my daughter loved this place, it is so well preserved and it makes you feel like you have stepped back in time. We went back the next day to the Apple Festival and had a great time. It is beautiful here, peaceful and will always make for a great place to go again and again.”

Our Mission

Historic Bethabara Park, Inc. supports the Park in on-going efforts to enhance the cultural heritage of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County by maintaining and restoring it historical structures. Significantly, the 1756 Palisade Fort was restored through the help of many individuals, companies and foundations throughout our community and the state. Most recently, the 1843 Log House roof was restored after in-depth research to confirm the year of its construction and with materials and construction techniques consistent with that period. With the rich array of historic buildings and foundations, Historic Bethabara Park and HBP, Inc. has a consistent focus on ensuring the integrity and accessibility of these community treasures.
