Old Salem

Yesterday Charlotte and I went to Old Salem – a surprise for her to celebrate her 65th birthday.  It’s always great being together, and I had not been to Old Salem since I went with Lindee’s class when she was in the 4th grade, I don’t think.  It’s a beautifully restored area, of course – much smaller than Williamsburg, but I thought the guides were every bit as good.  Needless to say, one of my favorite things was the cemetery.  This is a plaque in the African-American church yard.  It says, “The only gravestone not removed in the 1913 landscaping was Squire’s, which archaeologists discovered in place. Squire, an enslaved African-American, was digging a well near the wool factory that was built and owned by Moravian industrialist Francis Fries, when he died on July 23, 1844, at the age of 42.  Although Squire and wife Betty were Baptists, they both worshipped at the African-American Moravian Church.img_20160924_104944

We ate lunch at the Tavern at Old Salem, where the waiter highly recommended we try the pear cider. He did not mention that, and we did not think to ask if, it was hard. Charlotte really liked it, so she drank mine AND hers 🙂img_20160924_131748

  1. You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation however I to find this
    topic to be really something that I believe I’d by no means understand.

    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m taking a look ahead in your subsequent post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  2. Hello! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog such as yours take a
    large amount of work? I am completely new to operating a
    blog but I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog
    so I will be able to share my experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.

    Appreciate it!
