January 30, 2018 by  

Members of the public from Winston-Salem who would like to learn more about the history of their community will soon have an opportunity to do just that during a course that will be held at Salem College.

The series of classes, which will discuss the history of the area from when it was still the separate towns of Salem and Winston, will include presentations from an assortment of guest speakers. Walking tours of historic sites are also on the agenda, and the learning is intended to be both educational and fun.

The organizers noted that further details will be provided to each of the students after they register to participate, and this will include any special instructions and the location of the classroom. Parking is available nearby, and continuing education credits may be offered.

Any texts that will be used in the course can be purchased at a local bookstore, and those who plan on participating are asked to obtain them well ahead of time so that they will have them for the first day of classes. Catalog printing can be used to provide teaching aids

The History of Winston-Salem course will begin on February 13, and the registration fee is $55. It will be held on Tuesday evenings, and more details have been made available on the Salem College website.
