In October 2018 the Archives received a $1500 grant from the Garden Club Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County that pairs with a $500 grant received from the Old Salem Garden Club in July to fund the creation of a series of three traveling exhibits over the next year. All are “Treasures from the Archives” which will highlight the variety of resources for studying the area’s horticultural history. The first exhibit, “The Languages of Flowers in Moravian Wachovia” opened in January 2019. The second exhibit, “The BOtanizers of Salem, 1785-1835,” opened in September 2019. Future openings and traveling exhibit schedule information will be posted here.
To inquire about the exhibit and possible scheduling at your venue, please contact Archivist Eric Elliott.
OPEN AT THE ARCHIVES Now through November 30, 2019
OPEN AT THE FORSYTH COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY, North Carolina Room, 660 W. Fifth Street, Winston-Salem, NC, September and October 2019.
