Outreach and Education

Black History Month

February is recognized across the US as Black History Month. Since 2019, the Historic Resources Commission has used the City of Winston-Salem social media channels to highlight local buildings, sites, neighborhoods, and events that are important to Black history. Visit the city’s Facebook and Instagram pages.





Historic Preservation Month

May is celebrated as Historic Preservation Month both nationally and locally. Preservation Month was designed to raise awareness about the power historic preservation has to protect and enhance our homes, neighborhoods and communities - the places that really matter to us. It provides an opportunity to celebrate the diverse and unique heritage of Forsyth County and enables all of us to become involved in the growing preservation movement.
