Historical Warehouse Turned Bed and Breakfast Within Walking Distance of Old Salem

You’d be forgiven for mistaking The Historic Brookstown Inn for a warehouse because, well, it was one. The four-story brick building, originally constructed in 1837, housed a textile mill up until the mid-1920s and operated as a warehouse for a local storage company after that. It wasn’t until the mid-1970s—when the building was slated for demolition—that local historians identified it as the city’s oldest factory. Soon after, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the warehouse was converted into The Historic Brookstown Inn. Today, the elegant bed and breakfast pays homage to its past by incorporating the warehouse’s exposed-brick walls and wooden beams into its aesthetic.

Fodor’s writes that “no two rooms are the same in this historic, affordable, and very pleasant lodging.” Between the Historic Brookstown Inn’s two buildings, each guest room offers a different experience—standard rooms have been newly renovated, while suites offers two levels worth of space (some include fireplaces).

Brookstown’s innkeepers include an array of little perks to brighten your stay. Each evening, head to the parlor to partake in a complimentary wine-and-cheese reception. You’ll receive fresh cookies and milk at bedtime, and in the morning, a complimentary continental breakfast awaits. The inn is located just a short walk away from historic Old Salem, where you can shop, dine, and learn more about Winston-Salem’s beginnings.

Winston-Salem, North Carolina: History, Culture, and Colleges in the Piedmont Triad

Located in north-central North Carolina, Winston-Salem and the towns of Greensboro and High Point make up the Piedmont Triad. Originally, Winston and Salem were separate entities. Salem was founded first, in 1766, by Moravians who were escaping religious persecution in the present-day Czech Republic. Winston came along nearly a century later, in 1851, and would eventually become a heavy hitter in tobacco and textile manufacturing. In 1913, the two fused into a single city.

The Moravian influence is still evident today at the Old Salem Museums & Gardens, where a massive effort led to the restoration of more than 30 historic buildings. Wander around the colorful restaurants and shops with façades decked out in hues of red, yellow, and brown.

Winston-Salem is decidedly a college town. There are six institutions of higher learning nearby, attracting thousands of young people to the area and providing a strong fan base for basketball games involving the Rams of Winston-Salem State University and the Screamin’ Demons of Wake Forest University. The colleges are a big part of the city’s long-standing commitment to education and art. Another pivotal player in that arena is the Reynolda House Museum of American Art, where you can look at paintings and sculptures by Albert Bierstadt, Mary Cassatt, Frederic Church, and others.
