DescriptionDaniel Boone arrived in North Carolina with his parents in 1752. He was 18. The Moravians migrated into the area the following year establishing Bethabara. When Daniel's younger brother, Israel, was ill with consumption (i.e., tuberculosis), Daniel and his mother took Israel to the only doctor around for hundreds of miles, the Moravian physician in Bethabara.
The Town of Bethabara was the principal Moravian village until Bethania was established in 1759 and Salem in 1766. Historic Bethabara Park interprets history through the French & Indian War and through the American Revolution. Historic Bethabara Park is in Winston-Salem and is operated by the Department of Parks and Recreation.
