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.


Biltmore Estate is stunning! We want to come back. It took 3 hours to tour the house! We skipped the gardens due to the heat and approaching storm. We did stop at the Biltmore Winery down the road for a tour and wine tasting. We did not get to see the working farm on Biltmore because of the weather and the kids were tired!
