There were Lots of Water Towers in the area. The two RV Gypsies photographed them because their great-granddaughter loves water towers for some reason.

Below: Leaving the Visitor’s Center, the two RV Gypsies noticed the Old Salem Heritage Bridge, also known as Old Salem Pedestrian Bridge in some articles. The bridge was erected in 1998 and was designed in a style that would have been similar to those that had been erected by the Moravian community in the past. Although it is a modern covered bridge, it has the appearance of an older bridge, erected to fit into the design of the historic area. The bridge provides a safe way to access Old Salem from the Visitor’s Center.This covered bridge was erected with a Burr arch truss and spans one hundred and twenty feet over Old Salem Road. It features a single span supported by concrete abutments at each end.

Old Salem is a historic district of Winston-Salem, North Carolina that was originally settled by the Moravian community in 1766. This small city features a living history museum that interprets the restored Moravian community. The non-profit organization began its work in 1950, although some private residents had restored buildings earlier. As the Old Salem Historic District, it was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1966. and expanded in 2016. The district showcases the culture of the Moravian settlement in North Carolina during the 18th and 19th centuries, communal buildings, churches, houses, and shops.

Below: The Moravian Star hangs in the center of the Heritage Bridge. The star’s origin starts with the Moravian Church. According to the church's website, these stars came about from geometry lessons. Moravian boarding school students in Germany made these intricate stars during class, and religious leaders and church workers brought these stars along with them while doing missionary work during the nineteenth century.

In the Moravian religion, the star is symbolic of God, and is often correlated with the star of Bethlehem, which has led to an association of these stars with advent during the Christmas season. While this symbolic form is still used in the church, many people have adopted it into their homes as secular statement decor with no religious affiliation.

Lee Duquette found a very unique place
to take a rest.

The public restroom building was also unique because it was made with lots of rocks.

Below: Once up on the raised platform, the two RV Gypsies saw that the fence was covered with locks. Karen Duquette could only photograph a small portion of the locks, because there were other people walking around, blocking the view of the other locks.
