Salisbury, NC

We spent the afternoon of New Year's Eve in Salisbury, NC, a small town in the piedmont area of North Carolina. We wandered around downtown, in and out of shops, visited the local mall, and had dinner in town. Salisbury is the home of Cheerwine, originally called Mint Cola, so Cheerwine signs are found around town. We were sure to visit the soda fountain at the Drugstore to have a traditional Cheerwine Float.

We also saw the original bell tower of the Presbyterian Church that was destroyed in a fire.

Finally, along our downtown path, we found a large mural on the side of a building that depicts life over the years in Salisbury. We also discovered several relief, clay sculptures that honor the history of the Salisbury Cotton Mill.
