History Buffs

In Winston-Salem, history is not a relic, but a living, breathing force. Visit our city to learn from our history and find inspiration for your future.

We consider our rich history to be a guide for those who seek to understand the roots of innovation and change. In our city, the curious traveler is not a spectator but an active participant in a story that is both contemporary and steeped in rich Southern traditions and history.

From the Moravians who first settled here centuries ago, to the entrepreneurs who built thriving businesses during the industrial era (and continue to do so today), to the African-Americans who helped build this community, Winston-Salem is a beloved destination for history buffs. Take a guided tour on e-bike, segway, or trolley to learn fascinating facts about local history. Book a stay one of our historic homes and buildings turned into one-of-a-kind hotels — from the stately Kimpton Cardinal Hotel in downtown Winston-Salem to enchanting Graylyn Estate and many more.
