One of the first European settlements in the North Carolina Piedmont, founded by Moravians in 1753.
Founded in 1753 by German-speaking Moravians, Bethabara was the first European settlement in the North Carolina piedmont. Today, Historic Bethabara Park preserves the history and heritage of the “Old Town.” A National Historic Landmark and Local Historic District, the Park encompasses 183 acres of preserved wildlife, historic buildings and grounds, walking and birding trails, and protected wetlands.
The Park is managed by the City of Winston-Salem Recreation and Parks Department and supported by Historic Bethabara Park Inc, a 501c(3) nonprofit organization.
