Walking Tour

Historic Walking Tour Video - 

On September 17, 2021, the Anna Maria Samuel Project unveiled new historical markers that tell the story of African Americans who were enslaved by the Salem Academy and College before Emancipation and those who continued to work at the school into the 20th century. At the same time, the Single Sisters Museum was open for the community to view its newly updated panels and exhibits. The Anna Maria Samuel Project then facilitated a short walking tour of the campus, focusing on the sites that have significance to the school's history with slavery and race. This event culminated at St. Philips Moravian Church, at the end of Church Street, with a commemoration of those who were enslaved by Salem Academy and College.
