What better way to approach the Thanksgiving holiday than with a visit to one of North Carolina’s and America’s most treasured and comprehensive archaeological and decorative arts attractions---historic Old Salem.  (  Our day will begin with a customized, guided tour of the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA) , followed by visits to other venues in Old Salem that will include art, music, and culture of this 18th—19th century community. 

 A private luncheon will be served at Salem College’s lovely Rondthaler-Gramley House at which the President of Salem Academy and College will deliver remarks.  Founded by the Moravians in 1772, the Academy and College comprise the oldest educational institution for girls and women in America, fostering independence and leadership in women.  (  

Old Salem offers quaint shops, including the historic Winkler Bakery, home of iconic Moravian cookies and sugar cake (excellent holiday gifts!).  We’ll complete our afternoon with a visit to Reynolda Village on the historic estate of Katharine and R.J. Reynolds (Reynolda House Museum of American Art) ( for some great shopping.
