"Camel City" is a reference to the city's historic involvement in the tobacco industry related to locally based R. Many locals refer to the city as "Winston" in informal speech.
Another nickname, "the Dash," comes from the (-) in the city's name, although technically it is a hyphen, not a dash; this is used by the local minor league baseball team, the Winston-Salem Dash. The city of Winston-Salem is a product of the merging of the two neighboring towns of Winston and Salem in 1913.
In 1849, the Salem congregation sold land north of Salem to the newly formed Forsyth County for a county seat.
The new town was called "the county town" or Salem until 1851 when it was named Winston for a local hero of the Revolutionary War, Joseph Winston.
By the 1940s, 60% of Winston-Salem workers worked either for Reynolds or in the Hanes textile factories.
Salem Square and "God's Acre", the Moravian Graveyard, since 1772 are the site each Easter morning of the world-famous Moravian sunrise service.
This service, sponsored by all the Moravian church parishes in the city, attracts thousands of worshipers each year.
These included the church, a Brethren's House and a Sisters' House for the unmarried members of the Congregation, which owned all the property in town.
For many years only members of the Moravian Church were permitted to live in the settlement. Many of the original buildings in the settlement have been restored or rebuilt and are now part of Old Salem Museums & Gardens.
