Ready to discover your hidden gem of a dream home? Take one stroll along S Main Street, and we feel confident you'll be calling us to secure your home as soon as today! Many Old Salem properties date back to the 1800s, with some marked by front gates reminiscent of medieval times. If you're lucky enough to enter one of these historic homes, you might even find reclaimed doors and rustic iron work from the 1700s. But if you want to be brought back to modern day, all you have to do is drive down the street to Downtown Winston-Salem's many attractions.
For the freshest produce in the area, you can visit the Cobblestone Farmers Market. This producer-only farmers market loves to distribute locally grown food around the city to those who need it most—and there's nothing more heart-warming than receiving a delicious meal made by your neighbors. Craving a traditional Italian dish? We recommend dining at Di Lisio's and stopping by Camino Bakery afterwards for a sweet treat!
The historic community of Old Salem is widely known for its namesake museums and gardens, which serve as top historic sites throughout the entirety of Winston-Salem. Dedicated to sharing the diverse history of the early South, Old Salem Museum & Gardens has been preserving the historical remnants of the area since 1950. And while you're perusing the grounds, don't forget to pop in Winkler Bakery for arguably the best Moravian cookies of all time.
Old Salem's younger residents attend the area's top public schools—and the neighborhood has actually experienced increased property values thanks to its proximity to the schools. The community is currently districted to Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, which holds the title as the fourth largest system in the state of North Carolina. Salem College is located in the heart of the community and still proudly serves as the oldest women's college in the country.
