Abstract:
Bethabara’s community center isn’t a historic building, but a garden that has played a role in the community’s history for over 250 years. Started by the Moravians who founded Bethabara, a community in Winston-Salem, this garden is cited as the only known, well-documented Colonial garden in the United States. Its continuing significance is evident in recent efforts by groups such as archaeologists and Garden Club Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County to re-establish its original design and restore it to its intended purpose.
