Exhibits and Loans
In 2018 the Archives received a $1500 grant from the Garden Club Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County and a $500 grant from the Old Salem Garden Club to be used towards a project highlighting the variety of resources for studying the area’s horticultural history. Our then Archivist, Eric Elliott, created two fascinating exhibits “The Languages of Flowers in Moravian Wachovia” and “The Botanizers of Salem, 1785-1853”. Displayed initially at the Archives, these exhibits were designed to be traveling and available for loaning out to various venues. We are unable to loan them out at this time, but have them available for viewing through our website: “The Languages of Flowers in Moravian Wachovia” and “The Botanizers of Salem, 1785-1835,”.
