A small group of religious Germanic people called "Moravians" first settled in Pennsylvania, after arriving from central Europe and latter came to what is now Piedmont North Carolina to the present day city of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Here they built and created a planed community founded in 1766. These devout Moravian's could trace their Religious Faith to the fifteenth century Bohemian martyr John Hus who was burned at the stake in 1415.

After his death some of his followers formed one of the earliest Protestant denominations called Unitas Fratrum (Unity of the Brethren) in 1457. Salem, from the Hebrew word meaning City of Peace, was determined to be a "congregational town" occupied only by Moravians and thus would be spiritually and economically directed by the Church. Over the years these Moravians have held on to their European Traditions and customs passing from generation to generation distinctive recipes such as the one used to make our Moravian Cookies
