Merger: Making the Twin City
05/29/2013 | 56m 46s
Merger: Making the Twin City tells how and why Forsyth County came to have two towns – Winston and Salem - so close together that they consolidated in 1913. The hour-long program looks at the origins of Salem and its theocratic governance; the establishment of Winston and its rise as an industrial center; early, failed efforts at consolidation; and the forces that made consolidation inevitable.
