On January 6, 1766, twelve men set forth from the villages of Bethania and Bethabara in the North Carolina Piedmont and walked ten miles to begin construction of a new settlement called Salem. The new town was founded to serve as the church's administrative and commercial center. Today Old Salem is a National Historic District and stands as one of the best colonial restoration projects in the nation.
