Salem Waterworks

Record #:
How did the early settlers get their water? Main sources were wells, rainwater cisterns, river, and springs, but water from a faucet was unheard of. In the Moravian settlement at Salem, however, a waterworks was installed in 1778. Ratcliff describes how this system, which began with the use of bored oak and heart-of-pine logs, was created.
