Sweet Shot Day
And for my 3 boybarians Sweet Shot Tuesday, my favorite shots of the week, taken just today at Old Salem, in Winston-Salem, NC.  Old Salem is a living historical museum, a place that I have visited many, many times since childhood.  Somehow, in this town that has been in existence since the 1700s, I always manage to find something new.
The M. Miksch House is located in Old Salem, Winston-Salem NC. It was built of logs in 1771 and covered in clapboard and painted soon after. This house, located at 532 South Main Street, was the first private residence located in Salem. Matthew and Henrietta Miksch lived in the home with their daughter, Martha, and the family also sold products from the house, such as gingerbread, candles, processed tobacco and snuff.

This sign adorns the entrance to the M. Miksch House, located in Old Salem, Winston-Salem NC.
