Home to both, the Moravian Music Foundation and the Moravian Archives (Southern Province), the Archie K. Davis (AKD) Center, in Winston-Salem, may be accessed from the east or the south sides of the building.

SPECIAL NEEDS ACCESS, elevator access, and anyone who needs to save some steps or shorten their walk. Once you have parked in the Salem College/A K Davis Ctr/God’s Acre parking lot (see below), approach the building on the lowest level, at the center door (double gate, east side) and press the CALL button. The intercom is active, and someone will come down the elevator to let you in the building, there, at the double doors.

AKD Ctr

The Archie K Davis Center

There are two approaches for parking, as well:

You may enter 457 S. Church St. in your GPS system, to park on Church or Main St. in Old Salem and walk through the portico of Cedarhyrst (the castle-like structure, 459 S. Church St.), which houses the offices of the Moravian Southern Province. The A. K. Davis Center is directly behind (east of) Cedarhyrst.

BEWARE: some GPS and online maps do not recognize that Church St. is one way, north only, from Academy St., and Bank St. is one way, west only, from Church St.

Alternatively, and recommended, the AKD Center has ample parking in the Salem College/AKD Ctr/God’s Acre parking lot, at the east side of the building, and it is a bit easier to park and access the AKD Center. To find this parking, you may find it easiest to type 500 E Salem Ave., Winston-Salem (which is the address of Salem Academy) in your GPS system, to get to the parking area. You will see Salem Academy on the left and God’s Acre on the right. Keep straight to the end of the parking lot and turn right. The brick building, next to God’s Acre, is the Archie K. Davis Center – home of the Moravian Music Foundation. There are parking spaces reserved for the A K Davis Center.
