Old Salem – Winkler Bakery and Mike’s Morning Coffee

The Old Salem community (and Winston-Salem as a whole) is popularly represented by a tin coffee pot, originally built by Moravian Julius Mickey in 1858 as an advertisement for his tinsmith shop. Traditionally said to hold “740 gallons of coffee”, it was originally located at the intersection of Belews Street and Main Street in front of his shop.
