Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 8, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALp 11 Moslem key symbol of struggle OLD SALEM RESTORATION DEPICTS MORAVIAN LIFE OLD SALEM, N.C. (CP) The single S men lived together in one house from the age of 14, when they were apprenticed to a :ji trade. Single women lived in another J house until they married and returned if widowed. 5 All women wore bonnets with ribbons, the color of which revealed their status. Little girls aged under 14 wore cherry red; ages 14-21 dark red; single "sisters" blue and widows white. The sexes were divided in death, buried in separate parts of the cemetery. This was the life-style of a group of devout Moravians who came from Ger- many in 1766 to Salem, not to be confused with the witch-hunting Salem in Massachusetts. Old Salem, part of present-day Winston-Salem, is one of the few places in North America where one can see how communities lived in the ear- ly days. Several original buildings, the latest dating to 1820, have been reconstructed and are staffed by guides taught to work the early trades. Others have been restored as private homes. TRADES DEMONSTRATED The Single Brothers' House, a half- timbered four-storey structure, is a museum. The dining room has a long table, each place set with a pewter plate, a big spoon and fork-and knife with bone handles. The brothers did their own cooking. Several rooms are devoted to the early trades. Outside one hangs an elongated coffee pot, a sign once attached to the tin- smith's shop. Now it is the symbol of Old Salem and a large silver replica stands on a street corner. In the tinsmith's room, a worker may be making sausage staffers, candle moulds or cookie-cutters shaped like a violin, hand, horse or mousetrap. Most worker- guides are elderly men and women, often retired. One room displays the dyer's craft. Here are skeins of wool dyed from natural dyes used by the settlers. Indigo was popular. However it had to be fermented 10 to 15 days and the odor was'dreadful. Wives didn't want the stuff in their homes, so one house was built for the dyeing for the whole community." INGREDIENTS VARIED The deep red dye from the cochineal beetles was a favorite color with the women. Some of the dyes included red cabbage, onion skins and black oak bark. The latter plus copper sulphate produced a lovely green. Rose madder roots are a very old dye. King Henry VIII used them for hunting coats, now our hunting pink shade. In ear- ly days a prized gift to a bride was a bed or rose madder roots, a good start on the three years to maturity. Here, too, are spinning wheels. Men did .the early standup spinning but when a wheel was invented so the worker could sit- at the side of the birdcage frame or dis- taff, women began spinning. Hence the term distaff side for the woman of the house. Also a spinster was a girl who spent more time spinning than courting. The shoemaker's shop shows a pair of cheaper shoes with wooden pegged soles. At first shoes were made only by length and width. There were no left and right un- til 1785. Nearby is what is believed to be the oldest standing tobacco shop in the United States. Across the street'is the early bakery where loaves are still baked daily for sale in the old oven, nine feet deep by seven feet wide. The church, the boys' school (now a museum) and the tavern are also open to the public. The church built and ran the tavern as lodgings for non-Moravian trav- ellers and traders. George Washington stayed here for two nights in 1791. Beside it is the annex, now a restaurant with excellent food served in six small din- ing rooms, seating 86, by costumed waiters. Reservations are definitely necessary.
