Weekends looked different 250 years ago, especially this time of year. Summer was a busy time for Moravians in the town of Salem, who used the extra daylight to harvest and store food for winter.
- Watch talented potters continue the tradition of making goods at the Potter’s Workshop at T. Bagge.
- See working gardens and how they fed the Salem community at the Seed Saving Lab.
- Learn about the free and enslaved people who worshiped at St. Philips African Moravian Church.
- Grab a sugar cake at Winkler Bakery and see what it took to make baked goods in the summer heat.
Salem Saturdays in Summer runs through Saturday, Sept. 16. Pro tip: Buy a ticket before you go so you can start exploring as soon as you park.
