Abstract:
Old Salem, settled in 1772 by Moravians, has had its history well preserved due to members compiling detailed daily life accounts. Because of this, the task taken on in the 1950s to preserve Salem and turn it into to Old Salem was possible. Currently, Old Salem reflects historical integrity in its 107 historic buildings and individuals who realistically reenact daily life, evident in the accompanied photographs. An example of a conscientiously preserved historic building is the tavern George Washington lodged in during his visit in 1791, looking much as it did during his visit.
